1 Jesus Christ is passing by;
Sinner, lift to Him thine eye;
As the precious moments flee,
Cry, "Be merciful to me."

2 Jesus Christ is passing by;
Will He always be so nigh?
Now is the accepted day;
Seek for healing while you man.

3 Fearest thou He will not hear?
Art thou bidden to forbear?
Let no obstacle defeat;
Yet more earnestly entreat.

4 Lo! He stands and calls to thee,
"What wilt thou then have of Me?"
Rise and tell Him all thy need;
Rise, He calleth thee indeed.

5 "Lord, I would Thy mercy see;
Lord, reveal thy love to me:
Let it penetrate my soul;
All my heart and life control."

6 Oh, how sweet ! the touch of power
Comes; it is salvation's hour:
Jesus gives from guilt release;
Faith hath saved thee, go in peace.

7 Glory to the Saviour's Name!
He is ever still the same;
To His matchless honor raise
Never-ending songs of praise.

Smith, Joseph Denham, was born at Romsey, Hants, circa 1816. After studying for some time in the Dublin Theological Institute, he entered the Congregational Ministry in 1840. In 1849 he became Pastor of the Congregational Church at Kingstown, near Dublin, and in 1863 began a series of services at Merrion Hall, Dublin, and subsequently at other places. His Evangelistic work in England and Ireland is well known. In connection therewith he has published a large number of tracts, pamphlets, and small books. One of these, Times of Refreshing illustrated in the Present Revival of Religion, 1860, included several of his hymns which were sung during that time at his special services at Kingstown. He also published Seven Hymns for the Present Time,… Go to person page >
