651. 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]
