Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Tune: [Have mercy on me, Jesus]
Published in 4 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Have mercy on me, Jesus,
And wash away my sin;
I'm lost, but oh, my Savior,
Wilt Thou not take me in?
Jesus, take me in,
Jesus, take me in!
I'm lost, but oh, my Savior,
Wilt Thou not take me in?

2 I long to be forgiven,
And know that I am Thine;
Oh, let me now come to Thee,
And take this heart of mine.
Jesus, take me in,
Jesus, take me in!
I'm lost, but oh, my Savior,
Wilt Thou not take me in?

3 I know I'm vile and sinful,
And often full of doubt;
But yet I must come to Thee,
Oh, do not cast me out!
Jesus, take me in,
Jesus, take me in!
I'm lost, but oh, my Savior,
Wilt Thou not take me in?

4 Remember Thy rich promise,
Remember Calvary,
And let a poor, lost sinner
Take shelter, Lord, in Thee.
Jesus, take me in,
Jesus, take me in!
I'm lost, but oh, my Savior,
Wilt Thou not take me in?

5 Oh, yes, lost one, I'll take you,
For such I came to save;
I long for you have waited,
Now look, believe and live.
I will take you in,
I will take you in:
You're lost, but I will save you,
And freely take you in.
