Eddy Arnold - "Love Lifted Me" lyrics

(James Rowe - Howard E. Smith)

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.
Love lifted me, love lifted me

When nothing else could help, love lifted me
Love lifted me, love lifted me
When nothing else could help, love lifted me.
--- Instrumental ---

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

When nothing else could help, love lifted me
Love lifted me, love lifted me
When nothing else could help, love lifted me.
Love lifted me, love lifted me

Souls in danger, look above, Jesus completely saves
--- Instrumental ---
He's the Master of the sea, billows his will obey
He will lift you by his love, out of the angry waves

Love lifted me, love lifted me
He your Saviour wants to be, be saved today.
When nothing else could help, love lifted me...When nothing else could help, love lifted me
Love lifted me, love lifted me
