Representative Text

1 When Jesus alone was standing,
By all His friends forgot,
And Peter, near by, denying,
Saying, "I know Him not,"
'Twas then he saw the Savior
Look at him tenderly;
And then, rememb'ring the saying,
Went and wept bitterly.

Refrain:
He tenderly looked at me,
He tenderly looked at me,
He drew me graciously to Him,
When He tenderly looked at me.

2 When drifting away in darkness,
Lost in the blackest night,
Out on the sea of sorrow,
Far from the Blessed Light,
I heard a sweet voice calling,
Calling from o'er the sea,
And then I saw my Savior,
Tenderly look at me. [Refrain]

3 They took my blessed Savior
Out to the mountain side,
And nailed Him there to the cross-tree,
Jesus, the Crucified.
And when I saw my Savior,
Dying on Calvary,
He drew me graciously to Him,
By His kind look at me. [Refrain]
