And “Thank You for the spuds.”

There are “help me’s for this test,”

And, “Father, I need new duds!”

There is “If You’ll get me out of here,”

And, “Lord, I’d sure like to shoot a deer.”

But none of these, no matter how sincere

Compare to, “Lord, love You; I’m so glad you’re near.”

Out of the depths to the glory above,
I have been lifted in wonderful love;
From every fetter my spirit is free,
For Jesus has lifted me!


Jesus has lifted me!
Jesus has lifted me!
Out of the night into glorious light,
Yes, Jesus has lifted me!


Out of the world into heavenly rest,
Into the land of the ransomed and blessed,
There in the glory with Him I shall be,
For Jesus has lifted me!


Out of myself into Him I adore,
There to hide in His love evermore;
Through endless ages His glory to see,
My Jesus has lifted me!
