O Lord, Who Gave Thy Life For Me (Johnson)

Music for Choirs, Submitted Music (1998-2006)

O Lord, who gave they life for me, I come now in humility,

And here my sacrifice import; A contrite soul, a broken heart.

O may thy love in mercy shine, And bind my sorrowing heart to thine.

 

Upon the alter here I lay my pride, My hurt, each willful way.

My burden all of sin and care, And in its place thy yoke I’ll bear.

O may thy love my soul refine, And bind my trusting heart to thine.

 

My heart is full of love for thee Because I know thou first loved me.

Now by that love I’ll seek to live, And freely, like thyself, forgive.

O may thy love my life define, And find my willing heart to thine.

 

And as I strive to thus endure With cleaner hand and heart more pure,

In all around I see thy face And feel the bounties of thy grace.

O savior may thy love divine Now find my grateful heart to thine.
