Representative Text

1 Saviour, I come to Thee,
On Thee I call,
Thou art my hope and plea,
Jesus my all;
Thou Lord my refuge art,
Comfort Thou me,
Heal Thou my aching heart,
Thine would I be.

2 Saviour, I come to Thee,
Give me I pray,
Thro' Thy great love so free,
Strength for each day;
Thou knowest all my care,
Jesus my King,
Knowest the griefs I bear,
To Thee I cling.

3 Saviour, I come to Thee,
Be Thou my Light,
Upward my footsteps lead,
Out of the night;
Into the heav'nly day,
Bright with Thy love,
Lead me, O Lord, I pray,
Homeward above.
