12113. Christ Rescued Me

1 My loving Lord in sympathy
With tenderest love came unto me;
And from the depths of misery,
With His own hands He lifted me.

With His own hands He lifted me,
With nail pierced hands He set me free;
From depths of sin and misery,
With blood stained hands Christ rescued me.

2 So long had I been bound by sin,
So deeply dyed, without, within,
And vain all better life had been,
Till Jesus’ touch had made me clean. [Refrain]

3 Yes, out of darkness into light,
And out of weakness into might,
Then out of blindness into sight
With nail pierced hands He set me free. [Refrain]

4 Ah! sweet indeed it is to sing
The praises of my Lord and king,
Who even down to me did bring
The song of love and victory. [Refrain]

5 O hallelujah! praise His name,
My blessèd Lord, always the same;
The loving One, who bore my shame,
And with His life blood rescued me. [Refrain]
