Who can fathom why the Savior loves me?
Why He willed to die to set me free?
I’ve oft’ committed treason,
So tell me what’s the reason,
He gave His life for me on Calvary?

Once I skulked in dark, unpleasant places,
All God's holy angels hid their faces,
Losing grace once mine,
I wallowed with the swine,
While He sweat great drops of blood for me.

I confess I’ve sinned - I know I’m worthless,
None but He thought I deserved redress,
My shame and fall from grace,
Were swept without a trace,
When He was lifted high upon the tree.

I am pledged to Him, I’m His unfettered,
His alone who for my sins atoned,
The love that I once spurned,
Is humbly now returned,
The King says I am His eternally.
