Representative Text

1 Heart of Jesus rent in twain,
By Thy dying passion’s pain,
I to Thee for refuge run,
Lifeless, loveless and undone,
From myself and from my sin,
Heart of Jesus, take me in.

2 Arms of Jesus crucified,
To the ages open’d wide,
To Thy fold I fainting flee,
From the foes that compass me,
From myself and from my sin,
Arms of Jesus, take me in.

3 Love of Jesus, wider far,
Than the widest heavens are,
Deeper than my sin can be,
Who shall separate from Thee,
Safe from self and safe from sin,
Love of Jesus, take me in.
