When I was swamped by sin;
He plucked me from the sweeping sea
And made me warm within.
A Shepherd’s love has shouldered me,
Guided when ways were rough,
Herded me on the mountain’s lee
And over-filled my trough.
A Father’s love has brought me up
And given me its best,
Through Christ I live, on Him I sup
And in Him I am blest.
The Spirit’s love works in my heart
That God’s love may be spread.
By Him Christ chooses to impart
His impetus as Head.
