Contents of's Baptist Hymnal materials

1.	In loving-kindness Jesus came 
	My soul in mercy to reclaim, 
	And from the depths of sin and shame 
	Thro' grace He lifted me. 

2.	He called me long before I heard, 
	Before my sinful heart was stirred, 
	But when I took Him at His word, 
	Forgiv'n, He lifted me. 

3.	His brow was pierced with many a thorn, 
	His hands by cruel nails were torn, 
	When from my guilt and grief, forlorn, 
	In love He lifted me. 

4.	Now on a higher plane I dwell, 
	And with my soul I know 'tis well; 
	Yet how or why I cannot tell 
	He should have lifted me. 

	From sinking sand He lifted me, 
	With tender hand He lifted me, 
	From shades of night to plains of light, 
	O praise His name, He lifted me!
