Thy sake

I’ve got a word in my heart like a fire,

  That will not let me be;

  Jesus the Son of God, who loved

  And gave Himself for me.

  If He’d loved and died for some one else;

  For Peter or blessed Paul;

  If He’d loved and died for men like these;

  One wouldn’t have wondered at all.

  But ’twas for me that Jesus died,

  For me and a world of men;

  Just as sinful, and just as slow

  To give back His love again.

  Did’st Thou love and die for a man like me?

  Then, Master, I will take More thought for the perishing souls I meet

  If it’s only for Thy sake
