God Chose Me

You came to heal the broken-hearted,

And to set the captives free.

To release prisoners from the darkness,

My sweet Jesus, I was all three.

But by God's pleasure, He chose me.

And for that, I praise His name.

If He hadn't continued to seek me,

I would have stayed in sin and shame.

Your Spirit working to convict me,

Saved my soul and set me free.

For with my sinful human nature,

I would never have looked for Thee.

Eternity in Your presence,

God gives all who come to You.

We need only to believe and trust,

What He promises, He will do.

Oh, sweet Jesus, my sweet Jesus,

All my sins You washed from me.

And I know that You are waiting,

Just beyond the Crystal Sea.

My soul yearns to be with You,

And from this sinful world be free.

I long to kneel and thank You,

For Your grace in choosing me.
