Representative Text

1. I plead Thy love, my gracious Lord,
Thy wondrous love to me;
In sin’s dark bondage I was held,
But Thou hast made me free.

2. I plead the offering of Thy blood,
Thy precious blood, for me;
For cleansing I have naught to do
But look to Calvary.

3. I plead the merit of Thy life,
Thy perfect life for me;
In what Thou wast I can behold
What I myself may be.

4. I plead, dear Savior, Thine own Word,
Thine own sure Word to me;
And need no more, for Thou hast said,
I’m all in all to thee.
