198. It Is for Me

1 The face of Jesus Christ my Lord
Is turned in love on me,
The eye of faith has caught His smile,
And says: “It is for me!”

Refrain:
It is for me, it is for me!
I know by grace it is for me!
It is for me, it is for me
I know by grace it is for me.

2 The hand of Christ is holding forth
A wondrous gift to me,
The hand of faith appropriates,
And says: “It is for me!” [Refrain]

3 The lips of Christ are whisp’ring, come,
He waits to welcome me,
His invitation faith accepts,
And says: “It is for me!” [Refrain]

4 The arms of Christ are open wide,
He beckons now to me,
Faith gladly runs to His embrace,
And says: “It is for me!” [Refrain]
