I Choose You


I chose You in my youth
When first I heard the truth
That Jesus loved and died for me.
At times You were denied
When my own way I tried,
But still You loved me faithfully.

Dear Jesus, I have learned
I need to reaffirm
That sacred choice each day I live;
To hold fast to Your Hand;
Obey Your Word's command,
And all I am to You to give.

So, joyfully I say,
"I choose You, Lord, today;
The way of life I freely choose.
For more of You I yearn:
To win the lost, my whole life used."
