Jeremiah 31:3
"The LORD hath appeared of old unto me, saying,
Yea, I have loved thee with an everlasting love:
therefore with lovingkindness have I drawn thee."

          The gulf that separated me from Christ, my Lord,
          Was so vast the crossing I could never ford;
          From where I was to His domain, it seemed so far;
          I cried, "Dear Lord, I cannot come to where you are."

            Chorus
            He came to me, He came to me.
            When I could not come to where He was, He came to me.
            That's why He died on Calvary;
            When I could not come to where He was, He came to me.

          He came to me when I was bound in chains of sin,
          He came to me when I possessed no hope within;
          He picked me up and drew me gently to His side,
          Where, today, in His sweet love I now abide.

            Chorus
            He came to me, He came to me.
            When I could not come to where He was, He came to me.
            That's why He died on Calvary;
            When I could not come to where He was, He came to me.
