I was once in the wilderness, running lost
When He saved me, without me knowing the cost
He gave His son, and His blood was shed
A crown of thorns was put on his head
He was nailed, through his hands and feet, on that cross
That is why I can say "I count all things as loss"
For no one can compare with my King of kings
The Lord, the master, the creator of all things
He is my shepherd, and I am His sheep
All His plans, his promises He will keep
That is why I can run the faithful race
For He sustains me with His amazing grace
In His presence, I will always stay
For He is the Truth, the Life, and the Way
He reigns over me with His mighty hand
And on His rock, I will always stand
He is the Lord of the Earth and the heavens above
He chose to pour on me His everlasting love
The name of Jesus, I will declare and spread
For He can give life to a spirit that once was dead
I am not ashamed of His gospel that saved me
For it is only through Him that we can be free
On the cross he said, "It was finished, it was done!"
He loved us! That's why He gave His only son.
