1 It was for me the Saviour died,
The crimson blood flowed from His side;
For me the fountain opened wide,
It was for me, yes, Lord, for me.

Refrain:
It was for me the price was paid,
For me the Saviour low was laid;
For me the wrath of God was stayed,
It was for me, for you and me.

2 It was for me the Saviour sought,
My soul at wondrous price was bought,
For me salvation’s plan was wrought,
It was for me, yes, Lord, for me. [Refrain]

3 It was for me, O praise His name,
The Spirit sent in living flame;
For me, let voice and tongue proclaim,
It was for me, yes, Lord, for me. [Refrain]

4 It was for me a sinner lost,
The Saviour came at wondrous cost,
Now in His name I’ll ever boast,
For Thee, For Thee, yes, Lord, for Thee. [Refrain]
