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.

An industrialist and philanthropist, William H. Doane (b. Preston, CT, 1832; d. South Orange, NJ, 1915), was also a staunch supporter of evangelistic campaigns and a prolific writer of hymn tunes. He was head of a large woodworking machinery plant in Cincinnati and a civic leader in that city. He showed his devotion to the church by supporting the work of the evangelistic team of Dwight L.
