51. Help Me, Master

1 You’ve wandered far in the fields of sin,
You’re weak and worn with despair,
Come back, come back to the Father’s home,
With joy He’ll welcome you there.

Refrain:
Why, oh, why so long delay?
Jesus is calling, come today,
He’ll hear your penitent, pleading cry,
“Help me, Master, or I die!”

2 You’ve scorned and slighted His loving voice,
But hear Him patiently call:
“Tho’ sins like mountains around you rise,
My love can pardon them all.” [Refrain]

3 The peace of pardon will heal the heart,
So broken, sin-sick and sore,
The sins and errors of all the past
Shall be remembered no more. [Refrain]

4 Then come today with your burdened heart
And find the joy you have craved;
Believe, and sing with triumphant shout:
“My soul thro’ Jesus is saved!” [Refrain]
