My God, my God, to thee I cry

Representative Text

1 My God, my God, to thee I cry;
Thee only would I know:

Unless thou wash my soul from sin,
I have no part in thee.

3 But art thou not already mine?

And cheer my drooping heart.

4 Behold, for me the Victim bleeds--
His wounds are open wide;
For me the blood of sprinkling pleads,
And speaks me justified.
