Full Text

1 I bring to Thee, O Master,
My burden and my grief;
I do believe Thy promise,
Help Thou my unbelief.

2 I bring my guilty nature,
For cleansing and for cure;
Oh, heal my sore diseases,
Restore and make me pure.

3 Thy mercy reaches lower
Than all the depths of sin;
As Thy compassions fail not,
Oh, give me peace within.

4 My faltering faith I bring Thee,
My weak and wavering will;
My spirit fails and falters;
Thy promises fulfill.
