1 Loving Savior, hear my cry,
Hear my cry, hear my cry;
Trembling to Thy arms I fly,
O save me at the cross.

Dear Jesus, receive me,
No more would I grieve Thee;
Now, blessed Redeemer,
O save me at the cross.

2 I have sinned, but Thou hast died,
Thou hast died, Thou hast died;
In Thy mercy let me hide,
O save me at the cross. [Refrain]

3 Tho’ I perish I will pray,
I will pray, I will pray;
Thou of life the Living Way,
O save me at the cross. [Refrain]

4 Thou hast said Thy grace is free,
Grace is free, grace is free;
Have compassion, Lord, on me,
O save me at the cross. [Refrain]

5 Wash me in Thy cleansing blood,
Cleansing blood, cleansing blood;
Plunge me now beneath the flood,
O save me at the cross. [Refrain]

6 Only faith will pardon bring,
Pardon bring, pardon bring,
In that faith to Thee I cling,
O save me at the cross. [Refrain]
