Quote of the Week: “He Lifted Me”

Liberty Church Steeple Psalm 40 500x500 with Watermark

This week’s Quote of the Week is a great hymn text, He Lifted Me, by Charles H. Gabriel (1856-1932):

He Lifted Me

In loving-kindness Jesus came
My soul in mercy to reclaim
And from the depths of sin and shame
Through grace He lifted me

From sinking sands, He lifted me
With tender hand, He lifted me
From shades of night to plains of light
Oh praise His name, He lifted me

He called me long before I heard
Before my sinful heart was stirred
But when I took Him at His word
Forgiv’n, He lifted me

His brow was pierced with many thorns
His hands by cruel nails were torn
When from my guilt and grief forlorn
In love He lifted me
