In Tenderness

[Verse 1]

In tenderness He sought me

Weary and sick with sin

And on His shoulders brought me

Back to His fold again

While angels in

His presence sang

Until the courts of heaven rang

 

[Chorus]

Oh the love that sought me

Oh the blood that bought me

Oh the grace

That brought me to the

Fold of God

Grace that brought me

To the fold of God

 

[Verse 2]

He died for me while I was sinning

Needy and poor and blind

He whispered to assure me

"I've found thee; thou art Mine"

I never heard a sweeter voice

It made my aching heart rejoice

 

[Verse 3]

Upon His grace I'll daily ponder

And sing anew His praise

With all adoring wonder

His blessings I retrace

It seems as if eternal days

Are far too short to sing His praise
