1.  I have chosen Thee, my Savior:

None so dear as Thou to me.

Yea, in Thee my soul rejoiceth

And the light of life doth see.

From my heart I therefore say,

Call and pray:

Jesus, come and claim Thou me,

Claim Thou me,

For my soul adoreth Thee.

2.  I have chosen Thee, my Savior:

Thou has suffered for my sin;

Thou my troubled soul doth comfort,

Helpest me life’s crown to win.

From my heart I therefore say,

Call and pray:

Jesus, come and claim Thou me,

Claim Thou me,

For my soul adoreth Thee.

3.  I have chosen Thee, my Savior:

Beautiful and fair Thou art,

Rich in love beyond all telling,

Solace for my longing heart.

From my heart I therefore say,

Call and pray:

Jesus, come and claim Thou me,

Claim Thou me,

For my soul adoreth Thee.

4.  I have chosen Thee, my Savior:

Thou my refuge in distress!

In Thy sacred wounds confiding,

For my sins I gain redress.

From my heart I therefore say,

Call and pray:

Jesus, come and claim Thou me,

Claim Thou me,

For my soul adoreth Thee.

5.  I have chosen Thee, my Savior:

Let the happy day be blest

When Thy voice shall bid me welcome

To the saints’ eternal rest!

From my heart I therefore say,

Call and pray:

Jesus, come and claim Thou me,

Claim Thou me,

For my soul adoreth Thee.
