Verse 1: Naught have I gotten but what I received; Grace hath bestowed it since I have believed; Boasting excluded, pride I abase; I’m only a sinner saved by grace!
Verse 2: Once I was foolish, and sin ruled my heart, Causing my footsteps from God to depart; Jesus hath found me, happy my case; I now am a sinner saved by grace!
Verse 3: Tears unavailing, no merit had I; Mercy had saved me, or else I must die; Sin had alarmed me, fearing God’s face; But now I’m a sinner saved by grace!
Verse 4: Suffer a sinner whose heart overflows, Loving his Savior to tell what he knows; Once more to tell it would I embrace I’m only a sinner saved by grace!
Chorus: Only a sinner saved by grace! Only a sinner saved by grace! This is my story, to God be the glo-ry I’m only a sinner saved by grace!
