Dear Steve, For reasons I do not know, my Uncle Charlie believes fervently that I can locate a hymn for which he remembers only the chorus melody & some of it's lyrics. Steve, it would mean so much to me if you could find the name if it for us. Uncle Charlie is losing his battle with cancer, & even though I don't know why this request is so important to him, I just don't want to let him down. Here is all I know:
"Yes, I know
yes I know
Jesus' blood (love?) can make the vilest sinner plead
Yes, I know
yes I know
Jesus' love can make the vilest sinner plead ..."

The chorus melody (which may be in the wrong key) goes like this pecking on the piano w/ one finger:
"A# - C# B-D
G - B - B - B#
F# - Bb - A# - B# - B-B - D# - A# - F# ..."

God's blessings to you,

I think the chorus is
"Jesus' love can  make the vilest sinner clean".

Hi Shirley,

I think this is what you're looking for:

Come, ye sinners, lost and hopeless,
Jesus’ blood can make you free;
For He saved the worst among you,
When He saved a wretch like me.

And I know, yes, I know
Jesus’ blood can make the vilest sinner clean,
And I know, yes, I know
Jesus’ blood can make the vilest sinner clean.

To the faint He giveth power,
Through the mountains makes a way;
Findeth water in the desert,
Turns the night to golden day.


In temptation He is near thee,
Holds the pow’rs of hell at bay;
Guides you to the path of safety,
Gives you grace for ev’ry day.


He will keep thee while the ages
Roll throughout eternity;
Though earth hinders and hell rages,
All must work for good to thee.

My prayers are with you, your Uncle Charlie and your family.

God bless you,
