If You Had Known Me Before I Knew Him

Just an old rejected relic on the auction block
They decided to throw me away;
The auctioneer said, "Who'll take her?"
The room was quiet and still.
And Jesus stepped forward; He said, "I will".
                     Refrain
If you had known me before I knew Him,
You'd understand why I love Him.
If you had known me before I knew Him,
You'd understand my love.

I hadn't much to offer, just heartaches and fear,
And a life that was filled with despair.
For my rags, He gave me riches,
For my fears He traded peace,
From my old life He gave me a blessed release.
