1 Do not pass me by, dear Saviour,
Tho’ I may unworthy be;
Tho’ my heart be stained and sinful,
Look with mercy, Lord, on me.

Refrain:
Even me, O gentle Saviour,
Pardon, heal and comfort me,
Even me, O gentle Saviour,
Let Thy mercy fall on me.

2 Do not pass me by, dear Saviour,
I am hopeless but for Thee;
Let me hide beneath Thy pinions;
Look with favor, Lord, on me. [Refrain]

3 Do not pass me by, dear Saviour,
Make my blinded eyes to see;
Speak the word that shall restore me;
Let Thy goodness rest on me. [Refrain]
