672. He Lifted Me

1 In loving-kindness Jesus came
My soul in mercy to reclaim,
And from the depths of sin and shame,
Thro grace He lifted me.

Refrain:
From sinking sand he lifted me,
With tender hand he lifted me,
From shades of night to plains of light,
Oh, praise His name, he lifted me!

2 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. [Refrain]

3 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. [Refrain]

4 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. [Refrain]

Amen.
