Representative Text

1 Saviour, I know how kind Thou art,
How great Thy love to me;
And yet my weak, misguided heart
Is drawn away from Thee.

Saviour, guide me! Keep me, hide me!
Let me never stray;
Thou hast found me, O surround me
With Thy strength each day.

2 Saviour, with shame must I confess
How prone I am to sin;
O clothe me with Thy righteousness,
And cleanse my heart within. [Refrain]

3 Pity my weakness, Lord, I plead,
And give me strength to stand;
Thou only knowest all my need—
O hold me by Thy hand! [Refrain]
