hymn of the day

"Tis Not That I Did Choose Thee" [Josiah Conder]
Tis not that I did choose Thee
For Lord that could not be
This heart would still refuse Thee
Hadst Thou not chosen me
Thou from the sin that stained me
Hast cleansed and set me free
Of old Thou hast ordained me
That I should live to Thee

Twas sovereign mercy called me
And taught my opening mind
The world had else enthralled me
To heavenly glories blind
My heart owns none above Thee
For Thy rich grace I thirst
This knowing if I love Thee
Thou must have loved me first
