I thank Thee, O my gracious God,
For all Thy love to me,
As deep, as high, as long, as broad,
As Thine eternity.
And when I far from Thee did rove
In paths of sin and shame,
’Twas then Thou call’d’st me in Thy love,
And gav’st me to the Lamb.
Oh, happy day when, drawn by love
To Thee, my Saviour-God,
My guilty conscience came to prove
The pow’r of Jesus’ blood.
And happier still Himself to know,—
The changeless One on high,
Whose love led Him to stoop so low
To suffer and to die.
Praise—praise to Thee, my God, I give,
Who gav’st Thy Son for me!
I’ll render praises while I live,
And through eternity.
