When Your grace covered my shame
And saw my need
You gave me hope
Hope and a future
My heart is Yours
Now and forever
I am loved
Only because You first loved me

And I love You
Jesus I love
Yes I love You
Because You first loved me

Your sacrifice
Is overwhelming
Suffered and died
Because You loved me
I'm alive 
Only through Christ who first loved me

Nothing can tear me away from Your love Lord
Nothing can separate your heart from mine
Nothing can tear me away from Your love Lord
I am Yours, I am Yours
