I Thank My God

I thank my God, for all that Jesus means to me
From that first day, at Calvary we met.
I still recall, His presence towering over me
And kneeling there, the tears of guilt I wept. . . .
The Saviour hung, upon a cross to die for me
No greater love, this world has ever known.
For there He bore, the sin that separated me;
From holy love and all the blessing God has given.
 

I thank my God, the Holy Spirit strived with me
I wrestled hard, to cling to my old ways;
But in the end I followed Him to Calvary
And on the cross, I met my Saviour’s gaze. . . .
I could not move, as I beheld His suffering
His nail-pierced feet, and hands spread out for me;
Blood trickled down His face as Jesus said to me:
This is for you repent my child and be set free.
 

I thank my God, for all that Jesus means to me
From that first day, at Calvary we met.
I still recall, His presence towering over me
And kneeling there, the tears of guilt I wept. . . .
I praise You Lord, that even now I see You there
Though time has passed, no better place I know.
Beneath the cross, I take my sin and leave it there;
A healing stream where sin is drowned and blessings flow.
