73. I Am Coming, Gracious Saviour

1 I am weary, gracious Saviour,
Of the burden of my sin;
Thou alone canst cleanse my spirit,
Thou canst make me pure within.

I am coming, gracious Saviour,
All to Thee I now resign;
Wash me in the fount of cleansing,
And seal me ever, ever Thine.

2 Wand’ring o’er a weary desert,
Faint and sadden’d I have trod,
Seeking rest where rest’s a stranger,
Finding naught to ease my load. [Refrain]

3 Thus I come to Thee, believing
Thou the better portion art;
Take me, cleanse me, reign within me,
Never from my soul depart. [Refrain]
