Representative Text

1 How shall I come to Jesus?
How can I now believe,
Since I at first refused him,
Will he my heart receive?

Jesus, I look alone to thee,
Jesus, thy blood was shed for me;
Coming by faith, my pray’r shall be:
Save, oh, save me Jesus.

2 How shall I come to Jesus?
Nothing have I to bring;
Dare I approach his presence?
He is a royal King. [Refrain]

3 How shall I come to Jesus?
Nothing have I to plead;
Say, will the great Physician
Deign my request head? [Refrain]

4 Now shall I come to Jesus,
Now will I seek his face;
Pleading, in faith, his merit,
Asking, in faith, his grace. [Refrain]
