When I was Depraved and Helpless — Don Fortner
(Tune: # 291 — Guide Me, O Thou Great Jehovah — 87.87.87)
1. I was lost, a ruined debtor,
Sunk in guilt and misery,
Bound in darkness, chained and fettered,
When Christ saw and pitied me. —
My Redeemer, my Redeemer
Paid my debt and set me free.
2. When I was to God a stranger,
Prodigal, inclined to rove,
Jesus rescued me from danger,
And revealed the FatherŐs love. —
My dear Savior, my dear Savior
Waits to dwell with me above!
3. When I was depraved and helpless,
Dead in trespasses and sin,
Jesus, by His Spirit gracious,
Gave me life and faith in Him!
God the Father, Son, and Spirit
Will complete what He began!
