Hi Michael,

I couldn't find the entire song but pieced together lyrics from several samples
I'm not sure in what order Haskell Cooley wrote this.
here is what I found so far

Though black your heart with sin. Though you are dead within
It seems all hope is gone. No light in view
No matter what you've done God sent His only Son
To reach way down and save someone like you

He said behold I stand at the door and knock
I will come in if you will ask me to
And even now He's waiting with open arms
Oh let the Savior save someone like you

You say you've done so wrong
You've lived in sin so long
The Lord would never save someone like you

I dug a little deeper and found this recording with the rest of the second verse

You say you've done so wrong
You've lived in sin to long
The Lord would never save someone like you
That's where you're wrong my friend
God specializes in saving souls from sin
someone like you
