I was a blasphemer and persecutor,
and insolent opponent,
yet I received mercy and grace,
though I didn’t deserve it.
Jesus came into the world,
to save those with sin’s curse.
Among the many sinful,
I confess I am the worst.
Yet Christ forgives with perfect patience,
and redeemed me from my treason,
I worship and praise my God,
who has granted me freedom.
