1 Saviour, at the cross I’m waiting,
All to leave and follow Thee;
Wretched, poor, despised, forsaken,
Waiting, Lord, Thy sympathy.

I am waiting, I am waiting,
I am waiting at the cross to be saved;
I am waiting, I am waiting,
I am waiting at the cross to be saved.

2 All my earthly fame and treasure
I surrender now to Thee;
Let Thy mercy, let Thy pleasure
Speak the word, and I am free. [Refrain]

3 Precious Saviour, smile upon me,
God of wisdom, love, and might;
Take my heart, in pity own me,
Show Thy face, and all is bright. [Refrain]

4 Jesus comes! O glory, glory!
Now I feel the blood applied;
Tell to all the old, old story,
He who trusts is sanctified. [Refrain]
