I Did Not, I Could Not, and I Would Not

Tis not that I did choose thee
for Lord, that could not be
this heart would still refuse thee
hadst thou not chosen me

Thou from the sin that stained me
hast cleansed and set me free
of old thou hast ordained me
that I should live to thee

Josiah Conder
1886
