The balm of thy mercy apply;
Thou seest the sore anguish I feel;
Save, Lord, or I perish, I die;
Oh, save, or I sink into hell.

2 I sink, if thou longer delay
Thy pardoning mercy to show;
Come quickly, and kindly display
The power of thy passion below:
By all thou has done for my sake
One drop of thy blood I implore;
Now, now let it touch me, and make
The sinner, a sinner no more.
