IT WAS NOT I THAT FOUND THE LORD
(Tune: MY Faith Has Found A Resting Place #228 CMD)
I sought the Lord with earnest heart,
But not by my “free will.”
He moved my soul and sweetly forced
Upon my heart His will.
It was not I that found the Lord,
But Christ, my Lord, found me!
Polluted, lost, and ruined was I,
And dead in sin when Christ,
My Savior, with His mighty hand
Of grace, took hold on me.
I hold Him now; but, this I know,
Christ first took hold on me!
Savior, I live and walk by faith.
You know that I love You!
Yet, these things are the answers of
My soul, my Lord, to You!
Your love to me, my Savior, is
The cause of love in me.
