86. Look on Me

1 To the cross my steps I bend,
Trembling though its light I see;
Lord, the sinners only friend,
Is there mercy still for me?

Grieved and slighted though thou art,
Do not spurn my humble plea,—
At thy feet I lay my heart,—
O my Saviour, look on me.

2 I believe; oh, let my faith,
Thro’ thy grace, prevail with thee;
Snatch me from the brink of death,
O my Saviour, care for me. [Refrain]

3 In the ocean vast and wide
Thou hast said is flowing free
Let me now my sorrow hide;
O my Saviour, smile on me. [Refrain]

4 Not in vain, Redeemer mine,
Did I lift my voice to thee;
I am saved by grace divine;
Thou hast pardoned even me. [Refrain]
