Lord’s Day Hymn – “Jesus Died For Me”

“Jesus Died For Me”
By William Hiley Bathurst, 1831. Additional lyrics by Steve and Vikki Cook, 2006.

My God when I approach Your throne
And all Your glory see
This is my stay and this alone
That Jesus died for me

How can a soul condemned to die
Escape the just decree
A vile, unworthy wretch am I
But Jesus died for me

What glorious love, redeeming love
That bore my shame on Calvary
I will forever sing His praise
Because I owe Him everything

Weighed down by sin’s oppressive chain
Oh how can I get free
No peace can all my efforts gain
But Jesus died for me

What glorious love, redeeming love
That bore my shame on Calvary
I will forever sing His praise
Because I owe Him everything

One day I’ll look upon your face
And this will be my plea
Save me by Your almighty grace
For Jesus died for me
