Representative Text

1 Jesus, I am coming now,
Coming to the fountain;
Precious is th'atoning blood,
Shed on Calvary's mountain.

Coming now, coming now,
Seeking grace and favor,
That my weary soul may find
Rest in thee forever.

2 Jesus, make me true to thee,
Pure, and meek, and lowly,
While I walk the narrow way
To the city holy. [Refrain]

3 Jesus, fill my heart with peace,
Flowing like a river;
Day by day my joy increase,
Till the glad forever. [Refrain]

Moffat, Robert, D.D., born at Ormiston, Dec. 21, 1795, and died Aug. 9, 1883. Dr. Moffat was engaged for many years as a missionary in Bechuanaland, and assisted in preparing a hymn-book for the use of the London Missionary Society's congregations in that country. He contributed thereto upwards of 250 original and translated hymns (see p. 756, ii.). His English hymn for children, "Can I, a little child?" (Missions) is very popular; it is dated 1841. --John Julian, Dictionary of Hymnology, Appendix, Part II (1907)  Go to person page >
