Love Found a Way
Wonderful love that rescued me, Sunk deep in sin,
Guilty and vile as I could be - No hope within;
When every ray of light had fled, O glorious day!
Raising my soul from out the dead, Love found a way.
Love found a way to redeem my soul,
Love found a way that could make me whole;
Love sent my Lord to the cross of shame,
Love found a way, O praise His holy name!
Love brought my Saviour here to die On Calvary,
For such a sinful wretch as I, How can it be?
Love bridged the gulf 'twixt me and heaven, Taught me to pray;
I am redeemed, set free, forgiv'n, Love found a way.
Love opened wide the gates of light To heaven's domain,
Where in eternal power and might Jesus shall reign;
Love lifted me from depths of woe To endless day,
There was no help in earth below, Love found a way.
