Who Am I





Who Am I was written by gospel composer-singer Charles (Rusty) Goodman. Elvis recorded the song during his highly productive session at American Sound Studios in Memphis on February 22, 1969. It was the last song recorded by Elvis at the studio.



When I think of how He came so far from glory

Came to dwell among the lowly such as I
To suffer shame and such disgrace
On Mount Calvary take my place
Then I ask myself this question
Who am I?

1. Who am I that The King would bleed and die for
Who am I that He would pray not my will, Thy Lord
The answer I may never know
Why He ever loved me so
But to that old rugged cross He'd go
For who am I?

When I'm reminded of His words
I'll leave Him never
If you'll be true I'll give to you life forever
Oh I wonder what I could have done
To deserve God's only Son
To fight my battles until they're won
For who am I?

1. (Repeat)
But to an old rugged cross He'd go for, who am I?
