Luke 18:13
"And the publican, standing afar off, would not lift up so much as his eyes
unto heaven, but smote upon his breast, saying, God be merciful to me a sinner."

          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,
          the miracle of love that took me in its sweet embrace,
          and made me what I am today; a sinner saved by grace. (by grace).

            Chorus
            I'm just a sinner (a sinner), saved by grace (by grace)
            When I stood condemned to death, He took my place (my place)
            Now I grow and breathe in freedom with each breath of life I take;
            Loved and forgiven, Back with the living
            I'm just a sinner saved by grace (by grace).

          How could I boast of anything I've ever seen or done?
          How could I dare to claim as mine the vict'ries God has won?
          Where would I be had God not brought me gently to this place?
          I'm here to say I'm nothing but a sinner saved by grace. (by grace).

            Chorus
            I'm just a sinner (a sinner), saved by grace (by grace)
            When I stood condemned to death, He took my place (my place)
            Now I grow and breathe in freedom with each breath of life I take;
            Loved and forgiven, Back with the living
            I'm just a sinner saved by grace (by grace).
