1 Jesu, friend of Ssinners hear,
Yet once again, I pray;
From my debt of sin set clear,
For I have nought to pay.
Speak, O speak the kind release!
A poor backsliding soul restore;
Love me freely, seal my peace,
And bid me sin no more.

2 Sin's deceitfulness hath spread
An hardness o'er my heart;
But if thou thy Spirit shedl
The stony shall depart;
Shed thy love, thy tenderness,
And let me feel the soft'ning pow'r,
Love me freely, seal my peace,
And bid me sin no more.

3 For this only thing I pray,
And this I will require,
Take the love of sin away,
Take ev'ry vain desire!
Perfect me in holiness,
Thine image to my soul restore;
Love me freely seal my peace,
And bid me sin no more.
