51. My Only Plea

1 Father, I stretch my hands to thee;
No other help I know;
If thou withdraw thyself from me,
Ah! whither shall I go?

Refrain:
I am coming, Lord, to thee,
‘Tis my only plea,
The Saviour died for me;
I am coming, Lord, to thee,
‘Tis my only plea,
The Saviour died for me.

2 What did thine only Son endure,
Before I drew my breath!
What pain, what labor, to secure
My soul from endless death? [Refrain]

3 O Jesus, could I this believe,
I now should feel thy power;
And all my wants thou wouldst relieve,
In this accepted hour. [Refrain]

4 Author of faith! to Thee I lift
My weary, longing eyes:
O let me now receive that gift;
My soul without it dies. [Refrain]
