Hymn: TLH 37, st. 1-2: Lord, ’tis not that I did Choose Thee

Hymnary.org Organ Audio


1. Lord, ’tis not that I did choose Thee; 
That, I know, could never be; 
For this heart would still refuse Thee 
Had Thy grace not chosen me. 
Thou hast from the sin that stained me 
Washed and cleansed and set me free 
And unto this end ordained me, 
That I ever live to Thee. 

2. ‘Twas Thy grace in Christ that called me, 
Taught my darkened heart and mind; 
Else the world had yet enthralled me, 
To Thy heavenly glories blind. 
Now my heart owns none above Thee; 
For Thy grace alone I thirst, 
Knowing well that, if I love Thee, 
Thou, O Lord, didst love me first.
