came to heal the broken-hearted,
to set the captives free.
release prisoners from the darkness,
sweet Jesus, I was all three.
by God's pleasure, He chose me.
for that, I praise His name.
He hadn't continued to seek me,
would have stayed in sin and shame.
Spirit working to convict me,
my soul and set me free.
with my sinful human nature,
would never have looked for Thee.
in Your presence,
gives those who come to You.
need only to believe and trust,
He promises, He will do.
sweet Jesus, my sweet Jesus,
my sins You washed from me.
I know that You are waiting,
beyond the Crystal Sea.
soul yearns to be with You,
from this sinful world be free.
long to kneel and thank You,
Your grace in choosing me.
