Author: Christian Fürchtegott Gellert Hymnal: The Hymnal and Order of Service #237 (1926) Meter: 188.8.131.52.8.8.7 Topics: Satan, Conflict with Christ and Christians Lyrics: 1 Crushed by my sin, O Lord, to Thee
I come in my affliction:
O full of pity, look on me,
Impart Thy benediction.
My sins are great, where shall I flee?
The blood of Jesus speaks for me;
For all our sins He carried.
2 Repentant at Thy feet I fall,
To Thy cross humbly clinging,
O Jesus, hear me when I call,
My wants before Thee bringing.
My trust is in Thy grace and pow'r;
For all was finished in that hour,
When Thou didst make atonement.
3 When I approach Thine altar, Lord,
May I this comfort cherish,
That on the cross, Thy blood was poured
For me, lest I should perish.
Thou didst for me God's law fulfill.
That holy joy my heart might thrill,
When on Thy love I'm feasting.
4 Shield me against the tempter's power,
Whene'er he would assail me:
Confirm my faith in death's dark hour,
O let it never fail me!
Lord Jesus, who hast died for me,
My life I would devote to Thee,
To praise Thy Name forever.
Amen. Languages: English Tune Title: DU LIFVETS BRÖD
