He Chose Me, He Chose You
Lyrics and music by Elizabeth Ragsdale

Verse 1
My own people have stayed away
When I come to the well today.
A stranger comes asking for drink
Though custom forbids such a thing.
He tells of my fragmented vows
And the man who lives with me now.
He promises living water
And grace from the heavenly Father.

Chorus
No more the one who’s been shunned,
But the first to accept the life revealed by Christ.
He chose me. He chose you too.

Verse 2
Will the people I know believe
The truth I have just received?
I tell them the things I’ve been taught
By a man who can read all our thoughts.
With these words they go straight to the well,
Compelled to see for themselves.
In this way the message is spread,
And I’m freed from the life I’ve led.

Chorus
No more the one who’s been shunned,
But the first to accept the life revealed by Christ.
He chose me. He chose you too.
He chose me and you.
