Peter P. Bilhorn (1865–1936)


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


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.


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


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