LOVE LIFTED ME

James Rowe

I was sinking deep in sin, far from the peaceful shore

Very deeply stained within, sinking to rise no more

But the Master of the sea heard my despairing cry

From the waters lifted me, now safe am I

 

* Love lifted me, love lifted me

When nothing else could help, love lifted me

Love lifted me, love lifted me

When nothing else could help, love lifted me

 

All my heart to Him I give, ever to Him I’ll cling

In His blessed presence live, ever His praises sing

Love so mighty and so true, merits my soul’s best songs

Faithful, loving service too to Him belongs

(back to *)

 

Souls in danger look above, Jesus completely saves

He will lift you by His love out of the angry waves

He’s the Master of the sea, billows His will obey

He, your Saviour wants to be, be saved today
