Jesus, save my dying soul

Representative Text

1 Jesus, save my dying soul,
Make the broken spirit whole;
Humbled in the dust I lie;
Saviour, leave me not to die.

2 Jesus, full of every grace,
Now reveal Thy smiling face;
Grant the joy of sin forgiven,
Foretaste of the bliss of heaven.

3 All my guilt to Thee is known--
Thou art righteous, Thou alone;
All my help is from Thy cross;
All beside I count but loss.

4 Lord, in Thee I now believe;
Wilt Thou--wilt Thou not forgive?
Helpless at Thy feet I lie;
Saviour, leave me not to die.

Amen.
