  1. In loving-kindness Jesus came,
    My soul in mercy to reclaim,
    And from the depths of sin and shame
    Through grace He lifted me.
    • Refrain:
      From sinking sand He lifted me,
      With tender hand He lifted me;
      From shades of night to plains of light,
      Oh, praise His Name, He lifted me!
  2. He called me long before I heard,
    Before my sinful heart was stirred,
    But when I took Him at His word,
    Forgiv’n, He lifted me.
  3. His brow was pierced with many a thorn,
    His hands by cruel nails were torn,
    When from my guilt and grief, forlorn,
    In love He lifted me.
  4. Now on a higher plane I dwell,
    And with my soul I know ’tis well;
    Yet how or why, I cannot tell,
    He should have lifted me.
