1 Saviour, break this heart of mine,
Melt it now with love divine;
Only thou my help must be,
Only thou canst set me free.
Out of the deep and miry clay
Take me away, oh, take me away;
Show me the Rock, O Lord, I pray,
Rock of eternal ages.
2 Bend thine ear and hear my cry,
Leave me not in sin to die;
This my hope, my only plea,—
Thou didst come to rescue me. [Refrain]
3 Reach thy hand and lift my soul
From the waves that o’er me roll;
Where for refuge can I flee?
Lord, I perish; save thou me. [Refrain]
4 Save me now and evermore;
Lord, I would thy name adore;
Hide my trembling soul in thee;
Lord, I perish; save thou me. [Refrain]Source: On Joyful Wing : A Book of Praise and Song #26
