Gm          Bb                     C     F

Is my Savior’s love for me.

 

For me it was in the garden

He prayed, “Not my will, but Thine;”

He had no tears for His own grief

But sweat drops of blood for mine

 

In pity angels beheld Him

And came from the world of light

To comfort Him in the sorrows

He bore for my soul that night.

 

He took my sins and my sorrows

He made them His very own

He bore the burden to Calvary

And suffered, and died alone.

 

When with the ransomed in glory

His face I at last shall see

It will be my joy thro’ the ages

To sing of His love for me.

 

My heart and my hands are lifted to You
