Lyrics

I drifted far in sin away,
Upon life’s stormy sea;
But Jesus brought me home one day:
He did it all for me.

Refrain

For me (for me), the Savior died,
For me (for me), was crucified.
O praise the Lord, for I am free,
He did it all for me.

He drew me with His love to God,
By way of Calvary;
My sins were lost in Jesus’ blood,
He did it all for me.

Refrain

And looking up into His face,
When on my bended knee;
My soul was filled with saving grace,
He did it all for me.

Refrain

When mid the ransomed host I stand,
And think of Calvary,
My soul shall be in glory land,
He did it all for me.
