Representative Text

1 It was for me my Savior died,
On Calv’ry’s cross was crucified,
For me He bore the guilt and shame,
That I a pardon free might gain.

Refrain:
It was for me, it was for me,
My Savior died on Calvary;
No greater love could ever be,
It was for me, it was for me.

2 It was for me the trial hours
With human sin, and evil pow’rs,
That I at last, made free from sin,
Might joy and life eternal win. [Refrain]

3 His holy name I will confess,
Who left His throne my soul to bless;
No greater love could ever be,
It was for me, unworthy me. [Refrain]
