Representative Text

1 O to think the Lord of glory
Should so condescending be,
After all my sinful wand’ring,
Still to seek and care for me.

Even me, even me,
Jesus cares for even me;
Even me, even me,
Jesus cares for even me.

2 Once His call I disregarded,
Gladly now to Him I flee;
While I plead His tender mercy,
Jesus smiles and pardons me. [Refrain]

3 Now I know how great His goodness,
And by faith I now can see
What a sacrifice He offered,
When He gave Himself for me. [Refrain]
