1 I need Thy pardon, Lord,
Before Thy throne I bow;
On Thy forgiveness I depend,
O send Thy pardon now.

2 Just now, just now,
O send Thy pardon now;
Wash out my sins and make me pure,
O send Thy pardon now.

3 I need Thy pardon, Lord,
My only hope art Thou;
Without Thee all is dark and drear,
O send Thy light just now.

4 I need Thy pardon, Lord,
On me Thy grace bestow;
O cleanse my heart and make it pure,
O send forgiveness now.
