Representative Text

1 Oh, how my heart throbs,
Jesus I am sick of sin;
Oh, God, ‘tis bitter,
Just one look within;
I have never loved Thee,
I have broken ev’ry vow,
I have naught but sorrow,
Pain and sighing now.

Jesus, my Saviour,
Let me hear Thy gentle voice,
Teach me to love Thee,
Let my heart rejoice.

2 When all dispairing,
And my heart can find no rest,
Then softly wooing,
Jesus speaks and says,
“Tho’ your sins be scarlet,
I will make them white as snow;
Tho’ they be as crimson,
They shall be as wool.” [Chorus]

3 When all immortal,
I shall stand before Thy throne,
Stand with my loved ones,
This shall be my song:
Grateful praise eternal,
Be to Jesus free and full,
For His blood doth cleanse me,
Hath redeemed my soul. [Chorus]
