Charles H. Gabriel

In loving kindness Jesus came, my soul in mercy to reclaim

And from the depths of sin and shame, through grace He lifted me


*From sinking sand He lifted me, with tender hand He lifted me

From shades of night to plains of light, o praise His name He lifted me!


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

(back to *)


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

(back to *)
