10.10.10.2.


1
O LORD, what love for sinners Thou hast shown,
To give Thy life for those by sin undone!
But is that blood which doth for sins atone,
For me?
2
Was it for guilty sinners such as I
That thou, O Lord, didst suffer here and die?
And is that grace which Thou dost now supply
For me?
3
Is it for me, who early went astray,
Who turned from God to tread a self-willed way,
Is it for me that mercy flows today?
For me?
4
If it's the hopeless case Thou lov'st to meet,
If it's a sinner Thou dost run to greet,
Then 'tis for me to worship at Thy feet -
For me.
5
Yes, 'twas for me, Lord Jesus, Thou didst come;
To me Thou givest pardon, peace, and home;
And Saviour, in Thy loving heart there's room
For me.

H.D'A. Champney
