TO YOU ALONE

Words and music by Joseph P. Lichnovsky © 2016

To you alone

Jesus I surrender all

Answer to the call

Though my feet may fall

A thousand times

Your love has rescued me again

Cleansed me from all sin

And you alone

Forever the blood of suffering adorned the tree

Exalted

The broken flesh

Forgiveness manifest eternally

Anointed

Who could comprehend such selfless love?

Across the great expanse of time

Pure compassion drank this bitter cup

For a sinner such as I

Holy

Chorus
