Full Text

1 Out of the depths to the glory above,
I have been lifted in wonderful love;
From every fetter my spirit is free--
For Jesus has lifted me!

Refrain:
Jesus has lifted me!
Jesus has lifted me!
Out of the night into glorious light,
Yes, Jesus has lifted me!

2 Out of the world into heavenly rest,
Into the land of the ransomed and blest;
There in the glory with Him I shall be--
For Jesus has lifted me! (Refrain)

3 Out of myself into Him I adore,
There to abide in His love evermore;
Thro' endless ages His glory to see--
My Jesus has lifted me! (Refrain)
