Representative Text

1 Weary and wand’ring and sunken in sin,
Vile as a sinner could be,
Jesus beheld and to Bethlehem came,
Left his bright throne for me,
Left his bright throne for me.

Refrain:
All for me, All for me?
Lord was it all for me?
From the throne to the manger,
From there to the cross,
Yes, it was all for me.

2 Footsore and weary he toiled all the way,
Even to Gethsemane,
Oft I have met him and heard his sweet voice,
Praying for me, for me,
Praying for me, for me. [Refrain]

3 Still I rejected your Saviour and mine,
Till I beheld on the tree,
Suffering, dying, my Saviour and yours,
Dying for you and me,
Dying for you and me. [Refrain]
