1 Jesus, Thou Lamb of God,
Save, save Thou me;
Troubled in spirit,
Lord, I bring to Thee
Only a broken heart,
Only a sigh;
Lord, in Thy Name I come,
Pass me not by.

2 Here at Thy Cross I bend,
Weeping, alone;
O for one look of Thine,
One loving tone;
Here, like a bruised reed,
Helpless I lie;
Lord, in Thy Name I come,
Pass me not by.

3 Though I am sinful now,
Weak and defiled,
Lord, I am penitent,
Make me Thy child;
Here at the fountain’s brink,
Fainting I lie;
Lord, in Thy Name I come,
Pass me not by.

4 Lord, Thou canst make me clean,
Heal Thou my soul;
Let me but touch Thy hand,
I shall be whole,
Thou wilt not leave me here,
Hopeless to die;
Lord, in Thy Name I come,
Pass me not by.

He has had for years the superintendence of a large Baptist Sunday School in Cincinnati, Ohio, where he resides.

Amongst his collections we have:— (1) Silver Spray, 1868; (2) Pure Gold, 1877; (3) Royal Diadem, 1873; (4) Welcome Tidings, 1877; (5) Brightest and Best, 1875; (6) Fountain of Song; (7) Songs of Devotion, 1870;… Go to person page >
