1.  ‘Tis not that I did choose Thee,

For, Lord, that could not be;

This heart would still refuse Thee,

But Thou hast chosen me;

Thou from the sin that stained me,

Hast cleansed and set me free,

Of old Thou has ordained me,

That I should live to Thee.

2. ‘Twas sovereign mercy called me,

And taught my op’ning mind;

The world had else entralled me,

To heavn’ly glories blind;

My heart owns none before Thee,

For Thy rich grace I thirst;

This knowing, if I love Thee,

Thou must have loved me first.
