Representative Text

1 Do not pass me by, dear Savior,
Tho’ so full of sin I am;
Tremblingly I seek Thy favor,
Help me, O Thou bleeding Lamb!

Refrain:
Jesus, Savior,
In my need to Thee I cry.
Jesus, Savior,
Bless me, do not pass me by.

2 I can only plead, dear Savior,
Bringing now myself to Thee,
All Thy promises so faithful,
And the love Thou gavest me. [Refrain]

3 Lord, the sins of all my lifetime
Now to Thee do I confess;
Turning from the guilt that was mine,
To Thy loving tenderness. [Refrain]

4 Do not pass me by, dear Savior,
Purify me, Lord, I cry;
O forgive me, keep me, save me,
Help me, do not pass me by! [Refrain]

5 Now He is my Lord and Savior,
For He did not pass me by;
In His love so wondrous tender,
He has heard my humble cry. [Refrain]
