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.
