Sacred Songs and Solos Lyrics
Hymn No.78

First Line: Once I was dead in sin

Once I was dead in sin,
And hope within me died ;
But now I'm dead to sin,
With Jesus crucified.
And can it be that He loved me,
And gave Himself for me ?

2 O heightI cannot reach !
O depth I cannot sound :
O love, O boundless love,
In my Redeemer found !

3 O cold,ungrateful heart,
That can from Jesus turn,
When living fires of love
Should on His altar burn.

4 I live-- and yet not I,
But Christ that lives in me,
Who from the law of sin
And death hath made me free.
