6446. Shaftesbury

1 How shall a sinner find
The Saviour of mankind?
Canst Thou not accept my prayer?
Not bestow the grace I claim?
Where are Thy old mercies ? Where
All the powers of Jesu's name?

2 I will not let Thee go
Till I Thy mercy know;
Let me hear the welcome sound,
Speak, if still Thou canst forgive;
Speak, and let the lost be found;
Speak, and let the dying live.

3 Thy love is all my plea,
Thy passion speaks for me;
By Thy pangs and bloody sweat,
By Thy depths of grief unknown,
Save me, grasping at Thy feet,
Save, O save Thy ransomed one.

4 What hast Thou done for me?
O think of Calvary !
By Thy mortal groans and sighs,
By Thy precious death I pray,
Hear my dying spirit's cries,
Take, O take my sins away!
