Full Text

1 For me He left the realms of light,
And wandered thro’ earth’s dreary night;
He tasted ev’ry bitter woe,
And all because He loved me so.

Refrain:
He loved me so! He loved me so!
My Saviour loved me so!
My heart, my life to Him I owe,
Because He loved me so.

2 From heav’n to earth for me He came,
For me He bore the scorn and shame;
For me He suffer’d here below,
And all because He loved me so. [Refrain]

3 O blessed Saviour, take my heart,
And let me ne’er from Thee depart;
My life, my all to Thee I owe,
For Thou, O Christ, hath loved me so. [Refrain]
