Representative Text

1 No longer I’ll wait, O my Saviour!
I’ll come at Thy bidding today!
For over my spirit there comes like a flood,
The thought of the Saviour who shed His own blood
To save a poor sinner like me.

2 No longer I’ll wait, O my Saviour!
I’ll come at Thy bidding today!
My heart, once so stony, is melted to tears
To think how my Lord has been waiting for years,
To save a poor sinner like me.

3 Forgive and receive me, my Saviour!
Accept my surrender today!
I bless and adore Thee, O wonderful Love
That sought me, and call’d me, and stoop’d from above
To save a poor sinner like me.
