1. A prisoner to sin on death row,
My dark heart was filled with sorrow.
Right from the womb,
It was only gloom and doom.

Refrain:

But God saw my damn, and sent me His Lamb!
He took my place, and my disgrace
“O thank you my Lord, O thank you my God!”
“Thank you for your saving grace!”

2. I didn’t know what was right and wrong,
The power of sin was truly strong.
I couldn’t turn back, to the track,
There was no light, it was pitch black.

3. Nothing was well, I was sick in my cell,
I was going down straight hell.
A wretched soul I was desperate,
Sin would never from me separate.

4. I saw no scope, I was down slope,
There was nothing for me to hope.
I was a slave, tossed in the wave,
That was leading to the grave.
