Lyrics

Oh, ’twas love, Oh, ’twas love,
Brought my Savior from above;
Love for me, love for me
Brought Him down to Calvary.

Oh, ’tis grace, Oh, ’tis grace,
Finds for sinful me a place.
Grace for me! Grace for me!
Saving to eternity.

Oh, ’tis power, Oh ’tis power,
Keeps me surely hour by hour.
Power for me! Power for me!
As I yield myself to Thee.
