He Lifted Me
In loving kindness Jesus came
My soul in mercy to reclaim,
And from the depths of sin and shame
Through 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
Forgiven 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
My Savior 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!
