’Tis Not That I Did Choose Thee

  1. ’Tis not that I did choose thee,
    for, Lord, that could not be;
    this heart would still refuse thee,
    hadst thou not chosen me.
    Thou from the sin that stained me
    hast cleansed and set me free;
    of old thou hast ordained me,
    that I should live to thee.
  2. ’Twas sov’reign mercy called me
    and taught my op’ning mind;
    the world had else enthralled me,
    to heav’nly glories blind.
    My heart owns none before thee,
    for thy rich grace I thirst;
    this knowing, if I love thee,
    thou must have loved me first.
