Representative Text

1 When the Savior came from glory
To the earth long ago,
It was for me, it was for me;
‘Twas to show to sinful people
That our God loved us so,
It was for me, it was for me.

Refrain:
It was for me, the Savior came,
And paid the price in awful shame,
Jesus came to save the lost,
Tho’ it took Him to the cross,
It was for me, it was for me.

2 When he walked the earth in sorrow
‘Mid the sinful and wrong
It was for me, it was for me;
When He preached to His disciples
Or upbraided the throng,
It was for me, it was for me. [Refrain]

3 When the Romans thronged about Him
In the garden at night,
It was for me, it was for me;
When they took Him up to Calv’ry
Where on Golgotha’s hight,
It was for me, it was for me. [Refrain]

4 When He burst death’s bonds asunder
And arose from the grave,
It was for me, it was for me;
When He went from earth to glory
And the comforter gave.
It was for me, it was for me. [Refrain]
