“Tis not that I did choose Thee,

For Lord, that could not be;

This heart would still refuse Thee,

Hadst Thou not chosen me.

My heart owns none before Thee,

For Thy rich grace I thirst;

This knowing, if I love Thee,

Thou must have loved me first.”

Josiah Conder, 1836.

    Hi Debs,

    I came across your very entertaining and interesting blog while searching for the hymn “Tis Not That I Did Choose Thee”. Good stuff! Thanks for sharing spiritual things with the world and some good humor.
