gave the answer when
- Years I spent in vanity and pride,
Caring not my Lord was crucified,
Knowing not it was for me He died
- Now I’ve giv’n to Jesus everything,
Now I gladly own Him as my King,
Now my raptured soul can only sing
- Oh, the love that drew salvation’s plan!
Oh, the grace that brought it down to man!
Oh, the mighty gulf that God did span
Mercy there was great, and grace was free;
Pardon there was multiplied to me;
There my burdened soul found liberty
