He Lifted Me
- In lovingkindness Jesus came my soul in mercy to reclaim
And from the depths of sin and shame thru grace He lifted me.
- He called me long before I heard, before my sinful heart was stirred
But when I took Him at His word, Forgiv'n He lifted me.
- His brow was pierced with many a thorn, His hands by cruel nails were torn
When from my guilt and grief, forlorn, in love He lifted me.
- Now on a higher plane I dwell, and with my soul I know 'tis well;
Yet how or why, I cannot tell, He should have lifted me.
From sinking sand He lifted me
With tender hand He lifted me;
From shades of night to plains of light
O praise His name, He lifted me!
