Representative Text

1 I come to Thee, dear Savior,
Because I need Thee so;
I come, oppressed in spirit,
O make me white as snow.

Chorus:
I come, I come,
Just now I come to Thee;
I come to Thee, dear Savior,
Just now I come to Thee.

2 I come to Thee, dear Savior,
My soul is sick of sin;
I'll trust Thy blood to cleanse me,
And make me pure within. [Chorus]

3 I come to Thee, dear Savior,
To whom else can I flee,
For mercy, and for pardon?
Oh let me hide in Thee. [Chorus]

4 I look to Thee, dear Savior,
I see Thy wounded side;
I see Thee bleeding for me,
Thou Lamb once crucified. [Chorus]

5 I see Thee resurrected,
From death to reign on high;
I see Thee interceding,
To draw the sinner nigh. [Chorus]

6 I trust in Thee, dear Savior,
Thy blood now speaks for me,
And as I bow before Thee,
Oh bid me live in Thee. [Chorus]

7 I rest in Thee, dear Savior,
My resting is complete;
I find the sweetest comforts
While bowing at Thy feet. [Chorus]

8 Oh help me live, dear Savior,
Much fruit to bear in Thee;
To glorify the Father
Through all eternity. [Chorus]
