"Sweet Jesus" lyrics - THE OAK RIDGE BOYS

"Sweet Jesus"
(Merle Haggard / Kenny Vernon)

Jesus, sweet Jesus, You love me just as I am
Jesus, sweet Jesus, I've been washed in the Blood of The Lamb

The church wants to hear my confession
It's something they all want to see
Ah but Lord, I'm only a sinner, just a sinner
And my sin is all that I can be

Spoken by Merle Haggard:
As a boy I was always afraid to go down at alter call and kneel down
And over the years I wondered was my soul saved or was it lost
Then I realized salvation was all the Grace of Jesus
And we'd been saved just the way He saved that thief on the cross
