Representative Text

1 The Saviour left his home above
To die upon the tree,
That he might ransom this poor soul,
That’s what he did for me.

Refrain:
That’s what he did for me,
That’s what he did for me;
He died upon the cruel cross,
That’s what he did for me.

2 When penitent I came to him,
He gladly set me free
From sin and guilt and all my fears,
That’s what he did for me. [Refrain]

3 When wind and storms beat heavily
Upon my bark at sea,
He sent deliv’rance from on high,
That’s what he did for me. [Refrain]

4 At last he’ll take me to the sky
His smiling face to see,
And then I’ll sing forevermore,
“That’s what he did for me.” [Refrain]
