Hymn # 289–The Baptist Hymnal (1991)

My Lord, I Did Not Choose You
Words: Josiah Conder, 1789-1855
Music: Anonymous
Tune: WHITFIELD

(First verse)

My Lord, I did not choose You, For that could never be;

My heart would still refuse You, Had You not chosen me.

You took the sin that stained me, You cleansed me, made me new;

Of old You have ordained me, That I should live in You.

(Second Verse)

Unless Your grace had called me And taught my op-‘ning mind,

The world would have enthralled me, To heav’n-ly glories blind.

My heart knows none above You; For Your rich grace I thirst.

I know that if I love You, You must have loved me first.

PS–If anyone is familiar with this tune, I’d love to hear it.

    Travis, there some of the old hymnals up at the church… I can play through it for you… I don’t know it, but we can look at it.
