1. Saviour of sinners, oh, hear my petition
Weakly I've wandered afar from home and Thee;
Look Thou in pity upon my condition,
And in high heaven, O Saviour, plead for me!
Plead for me, Saviour,
Grant me Thy favor;
Humbly before Thee I
Come on bended knee;
Of my trangression,
Wayward and erring
O Saviour, plead for me!
2. Plead for me, Saviour, my pathway is dreary;
Helpless my frail bark, the sport of storm and sea.
Guide Thou my feet to the home of the weary
Welcome the wand'rer O Saviour, plead for me! [Chorus]
3. Plead for me, Saviour! so weak, frail and erring;
Childlike I stretch forth my trembling hands to Thee;
Love, joy and peace thro' Thy rich grace conferring,
Look Thou in mercy O Saviour, plead for me! [Chorus]
