My Lord, I did not chose You

I was listening to Matthew Smith's cd "All I owe" this afternoon. On it I came across this song "My Lord, I did not choose You." This has quickly become my favorite song on this cd. This song full of great theology is pretty much the opposite of the free will song that has gained so much attention recently. I'm glad that God did not leave it up to me to choose Him, I am sure my sin would have won over and I never would have chose Him. But praise Him that He chose me, opened my eyes, and drew me to Himself.

My Lord, I did not choose You
Written by Josiah Conder

My Lord, I did not choose You,
For that could never be;
My heart would still refuse You,
Had You not chosen me.
You took the sin that stained me,
You cleansed me, made me new;
Of old You have ordained me,
That I should live in You.

Unless Your grace had called me
And taught my op’ning mind,
The world would have enthralled me,
To heav’nly glories blind.
My heart knows none above You;
For Your rich grace I thirst;
I know that if I love You,
You must have loved me first.
