From: Guitar Picker - www.gospelmusic.org.ukLove Lifted Me

G
I was sinking deep in sin,
                      D
Far from the peaceful shore;
D7
Very deeply stained with sin,
                G
Sinking to rise no more.

But the Master of the sea
                    C
Heard my despairing cry;
                G      C
From the waters lifted me,
    D       G
Now safe am I.


Chorus:

G                           C
Love lifted me, love lifted me!
             G                A           D
When nothing else could help, love lifted me!
G                           C
Love lifted me, love lifted me!
             G	              D    G
When nothing else could help, love lifted me!


All my heart to Him I give,
Ever to Him Iíll cling;
In His blessed presence live,
Ever His praises sing.
Love so mighty and so true,
Merits my soulís best songs;
Faithful, loving service, too,
To Him belongs.


Souls in danger, look above;
Jesus completely saves.
He will lift you by His love
Out of the angry waves.
He will lift you by His love
Out of the angry waves.
Heís the Master of the sea,
Billows His will obey.
He your saviour, wants to be;
Be saved today
