Hymn/Song Information

My Lord I did not choose you for that




My Lord, I did not choose you,
for that could never be;
my heart would still refuse you
had you not chosen me.
You took the sin that stained me,
you cleansed me, made me new;
for you, Lord, had ordained me
that I should live in you.


Unless your grace had called me
and taught my opening mind,
the world would have enthralled me,
to heavenly glories blind.
My heart knows none above you;
for you I long, I thirst,
and know that, if I love you,
Lord, you have loved me first.


Your love has been forever,
From all eternity;
Its drawing power never
Shall be withdrawn from me;
I feel that I am kept by
The strength of love divine,
And when I wake in Heaven,
All glory shall be Thine.

My Lord, I did not choose You,
For that could never be;
My heart would still refuse You,
Had You not chosen me.
You took the sin that stained me,
You cleansed me, made me new;
Of old You have ordained me,
That I should live in You.


Unless Your grace had called me
And taught my opíning mind,
The world would have enthralled me,
To heavínly glories blind.
My heart knows none above You;
For Your rich grace I thirst;
I know that if I love You,
You must have loved me first.
