11962. Save Me Now

1 Lord, my wayward heart is broken,
May I come to Thee?
In Thy gentle arms of mercy
Hast Thou room for me?

Save me! Save me!
Weeping at the cross I bow;
Hear my humble supplication:
Jesus, save me now.

2 Tho’ I long have grieved Thy Spirit,
Long refused Thy grace,
Do not cast me from Thy presence,
Do not hide Thy face. [Refrain]

3 Could my faith but touch Thy garment,
Healed my soul would be;
Let Thy smile of sweet forgiveness,
Shed one beam for me. [Refrain]

4 Save me now, or I must perish,
Save me, I implore;
Speak those loving words so tender,
"Go and sin no more." [Refrain]
