His loving arms around me

Full Text

1 I was far away from Jesus, dead in trespasses and sin,
And I thought for one so vile no hope could be;
But the blessed Lord of Glory stooped and raised me to Himself,
And He put His loving arms around me.

He put His mighty arms around me,
He put His loving arms around me,
I look’d into His face, it beam’d with tender grace
As He put His loving arms around me.

2 Then He whispered to me pardon thro’ the all atoning blood
Which He shed for my transgressions on the tree;
And the blessed peace of heaven came into my weary soul,
As He put His loving arms around me.

He put His mighty arms around me,
He put His loving arms around me,
I look’d into His face, it beam’d with tender grace
As He put His loving arms around me.

3 Day by day He guides and keeps me in the blessed narrow way,
From the ban of sin and death He makes me free;
There’s no evil can befall me while I’m resting in His grace,
And He has His loving arms around me.

He put His mighty arms around me,
He put His loving arms around me,
I look’d into His face, it beam’d with tender grace
As He put His loving arms around me.

4 In the hour of deepest trial when all earthly comfort fails
And no cheering ray of sunshine I can see,
Then to Him I bring my sorrow and He wipes away my tears,
As He puts His loving arms around me.

He put His mighty arms around me,
He put His loving arms around me,
I look’d into His face, it beam’d with tender grace
As He put His loving arms around me.

5 Oh, this blessed life in Jesus! Sinner, won’t you hear His call?
From the pow’r of sin’s dominion He can free;
Yield thy heart to Him this moment and with joy thou’lt surely find
That He’ll put His loving arms around thee!

He’ll put His mighty arms around thee,
He’ll put His loving arms around thee,
Look up into His face, it beams with tender grace,
And He’ll put His loving arms around thee.
