Representative Text

1 I come to Thee, Thou Son of God,
And before Thy altar fall;
Spare not on me Thy chastening rod,
O hear me as on Thy name I call.

Savior, Savior,
Hear my earnest cry;
O hear and save me, save me,
Or I die.

2 I merit naught but death, I know,
But I pray Thee to forgive;
On me, Thy mercy, Lord, bestow,
And let me but serve Thee while I live. [Refrain]

3 My sins I lay before Thee now,
And with all my heart confess
Thou art my God, to Thee I bow,
Lord Jesus, Thou Son of Righteousness. [Refrain]

4 I will not let Thee go, dear Lord,
Till my sins are all forgiven;
I plead the promise of Thy word,
O hear me and make me fit for Heav’n. [Refrain]
