My Lord, I did not choose you

My Lord, I did not choose you,
for that could never be;
this heart would still refuse you
had you not chosen me:
you took the sin that stained me,
you cleansed and made me new;
for you of old ordained me
that I should live to you.

2. Unless your grace had called me
and taught my opening mind,
the world would have enthralled me,
to heavenly glories blind:
my heart knows none above you;
for you I long, I thirst,
and know that if I love you,
Lord, you have loved me first.
