"What the Lord Had Done in Me" complete lyrics

We sang this song, which is a favorite of mine, in church this morning, and I noticed--as I have the last few times we've done it at my church--that our worship minister had decided to do an abbreviated version of it. This bothers me because he happens to have cut my favorite verse. :( So, mainly for my own satisfaction, but perhaps for the edification of others as well, I'm posting the complete lyrics (missing verse in bold):

"What The Lord Has Done In Me" by Reuben Morgan

Let the weak say I am strong
Let the poor say I am rich
Let the blind say I can see
It's what the Lord has done in me

Hosanna, Hosanna
To the Lamb that was slain
Hosanna, Hosanna
Jesus died and rose again

Into the river I will wade
There my sins are washed away
From the heavens' mercy streams
Of the Savior's love for me

I will rise from waters deep
Into the saving arms of God
I will sing salvation songs
Jesus Christ has set me free


"I will rise from waters deep/Into the saving arms of God" are the lines that have the most impact on me--there's something almost romantic in them, I suppose. ("Romantic" isn't really the right word. I guess I'm not sure how to describe it.)
