Love Lifted Me
Words by James Rowe
Music by Howard E. Smith

Matthew 14:30
"But when he saw the wind boisterous, he was afraid;
and beginning to sink, he cried, saying, Lord, save me."

          I was sinking deep in sin, far from the peaceful shore,
          Very deeply stained within, sinking to rise no more,
          But the Master of the sea, heard my despairing cry,
          From the waters lifted me, now safe am I.

            Chorus
            Love lifted me! (even me) Love lifted me! (even me)
            When nothing else could help, Love lifted me!

          All my heart to Him I give, ever to Him I’ll cling
          In His blessed presence live, ever His praises sing,
          Love so mighty and so true, merits my soul's best songs,
          Faithful, loving service too, to Him belongs.

            Chorus
            Love lifted me! (even me) Love lifted me! (even me)
            When nothing else could help, Love lifted me!

          Souls in danger look above, Jesus completely saves,
          He will lift you by His love, out of the angry waves.
          He's the Master of the sea, billows His will obey,
          He your Savior wants to be, be saved today.

            Chorus
            Love lifted me! (even me) Love lifted me! (even me)
            When nothing else could help, Love lifted me!
