Representative Text

1 I'm helpless, Lord, to Thee I fly,
In mercy hear me when I cry,
While now I urge one only plea:
Jesus of Nazareth died for me!

Refrain:
Jesus of Nazareth died for me,
Died to redeem me and set me free.
This is my hope, my only plea:
Jesus of Nazareth died for me!

2 I know Thou wilt my sins forgive,
For Thou hast bid me turn and live,
With longing heart I come to Thee:
Jesus of Nazareth died for me! [Refrain]

3 My Saviour now is lifted up,
I look to Him, my only hope,
I trust Thy word and press the plea:
Jesus of Nazareth died for me! [Refrain]

4 And now I hear Thy pard'ning voice,
That bids me in Thy love rejoice,
My soul doth triumph in the plea:
Jesus of Nazareth died for me! [Refrain]

Clark, William Henry. (Racine, Wisconsin, April 8, 1854--November 8, 1925, Rome, New York). Free Methodist. In his infancy, his parents returned to their former home in New York State, where his mother soon died, and his father married a close friend of hers, who forecast, after William's conversion in 1873, that one day he would be a bishop. He served the Susquehanna Conference of his denomination as a pastor and district superintendent from 1876 until 1919, when his stepmother's prediction came true. Meanwhile, he had been a member of the joint commission of the Free and Wesleyan Methodist Churches which compiled the Hymnal of 1910, and contributed some items to it. He died in office, requesting no eulogy at his funeral. --Arlene Clyde… Go to person page >
