1 Savior of sinners, now revive us
With Thy free mercy from above;
Friend of the sinful and the weary,
Turn unto us Thy heart of love!
O come,Thy sweet compassion showing,
On our poor souls Thy grace bestowing.
2 O Thou, our only hope and helper;
The Wonderful is still Thy name,
Who come to Thee in every sorrow
Shall ever find Thy love the same,
Thy grace and mercy never failing,
O'er every foe Thy might prevailing.
3 Thou knowest how poor mortals wander
In error's shade, deceived and blind;
Come, Lord, and graciously enlighten
The darkness of our heart and mind.
Thy glory every truth revealing,
Which sin and Satan are concealing.
4 Father, our misery thou knowest,
Our joy, our peace, our glory gone.
The message of Thy mercy send us,
The precious gospel of Thy Son.
Then life shall change to peace and blessing,
In Christ our Lord our good possessing.
