Representative Text

1 Repentant and weary of sin,
I’m longing salvation to win;
Surrend’ring my all, I answer Thy call,
I’m coming, dear Savior, to Thee.

Believing each promise divine,
The world and its ways I resign;
My guilt I confess, oh! pardon and bless,
I’m coming, dear Savior, to Thee!

2 No longer sin’s pleasures can charm,
Or thoughts of Thy vengeance alarm;
I’ll trust in Thy love, my guilt to remove,
I’m coming, dear Savior, to Thee. [Refrain]

3 From perils and sorrow of night,
To safety and peace and delight,
Confessing Thy name, each promise I claim,
I’m coming, dear Savior, to Thee. [Refrain]

4 No more from Thy guidance I’ll stray,
But walk in Thy footsteps each day;
With gladness untold, to enter Thy fold,
I’m coming, dear Savior, to Thee. [Refrain]
