1. You Chose Me         

Words and Music by Grant Van Leuven

2003 Dumb Sheep Music
ASCAP

I was a dead man at the bottom of the ocean Cold and lifeless, boats passin’ over me Then You reached down through murky water Pulled my body out and breathed Your life in me No, I didn’t choose You, my Lord You chose me

I was Lazarus, laid in a gloomy tomb On a cold stone slab, people crying over me Then you wept loud, and yelled “Come on out!” And I rose, I rose for all to see No, I didn’t choose You, my Lord, You chose me

‘Cause a dead man can’t grab hold of a life vest And he can’t raise himself off a stone Only You can quicken the heart of the ones You call Your own And You call Your own

Now I’m born again Awakened from the dead Was blind and lost, but now am found and free And though I stumble, and stray like a dumb sheep Your rod and staff keep and comfort me Though I didn’t choose You, my Lord, I thank You for choosing me Though I didn’t choose You, my Lord, I thank You for holding on, holding on to me Thank You, thank You for choosing me
