Sinner Saved By Grace

Album: The Cathedrals: A Farewell Celebration (1999)
  • if you could see what I once was
    if you could go with me
    back to where I started from
    then I know you would see
    a miracle of love that took me
    in its sweet embrace
    and made me what I am today
    just an old sinner saved by grace

    Chorus
    I'm just a sinner saved by grace
    when I stood condemned to death
    he took my place
    now I live and breathe in freedom
    with each breath of life I take
    I'm loved and forgiven
    back with the living
    I'm just a sinner saved by grace

    how could I boast of anything
    I've ever seen or done?
    how could I dare to claim as mine
    the victories God has won?
    where would I be
    had God not brought me
    safely to this place?
    I'm here to say I'm nothing but
    an old sinner saved by grace

    Chorus:
    I'm just a sinner saved by grace
    when I stood condemned to death
    he took my place
    now I live and breathe in freedom
    with each breath of life I take
    I'm loved and forgiven
    back with the living
    I'm just a sinner saved by grace
