Lyrics

Somebody came and lifted me
Out of my sin and misery
Somebody came, O who could it be,
Who could it be but Jesus?

Refrain

Who could it be, O who could it be?
Who could it be but Jesus?
Who could it be, O who could it be?
Who could it be but Jesus?

Somebody bent so tenderly,
Pleading so long and patiently,
Somebody came, O who could it be,
Who could it be but Jesus?

Refrain

Somebody whispered sweet and low,
Telling me just the way to go,
Somebody spoke, I listened, and lo,
Who could it be but Jesus?

Refrain

Somebody holds my hand each day,
Guiding my feet lest I should stray,
Walking with Him how blessèd the way,
Who could it be but Jesus?
