Love Lifted Me

I was sinking deep in sin,
Far from the peaceful shore;
Very deeply stained within,
Sinking to rise no more;
But the Master of the sea
Heard my despairing cry,
From the waters lifted me;
Now safe am I.

Love lifted me, love lifted me,
When no one but Christ could help,
Love lifted me.

SASB 336, verse 1 and chorus, written by James Rowe (1865-1933)
