Weary and wandering and sunken in sin,
Vile as a sinner could be,
Jesus beheld and to Bethlehem came,
Left His bright throne for me,
Left His bright throne for me.

Refrain

All for me, all for me?
Lord, was it all for me?
From the throne to the manger,
From there to the cross,
Yes, it was all for me.

Footsore and weary He toiled on the way,
Even to Gethsemane;
Oft I have met Him and heard His sweet voice,
Praying for me, for me,
Praying for me, for me.

Refrain

Still I rejected your Savior and mine,
Till I beheld on the tree,
Suffering, dying, my Savior and yours,
Dying for you and me,
Dying for you and me.

Refrain
