Representative Text

1 Saviour, I come, I come to Thee!
Thy word alone can make me free,
For Thou hast died to ransom me.
Saviour, to Thee I come,
Saviour, I come!

2 Saviour, I come to Thee for grace!
And humbly take the lowest place,
If I can only see Thy face!
Saviour, to Thee I come,
Saviour, I come!

3 Saviour, I come to Thee for rest!
My weary soul with guilt oppressed,
O let me lean upon Thy breast!
Saviour, to Thee I come,
Saviour, I come!

4 Saviour, I come, I come to Thee!
To Thy dear cross alone I flee,
Thy sacrifice my only plea!
Saviour, to Thee I come,
Saviour, I come!
