Saviour of the sin-sick soul

Representative Text

1. Saviour of the sin-sick soul,
Give me faith to make me whole;
Finish thy great work of grace;
Cut it short in righteousness.

2. Speak the second time,--Be clean!
Take away my inbred sin;
Every stumbling-block remove;
Cast it out by perfect love.

3. Nothing less will I require;
Nothing more can I desire;
None but Christ to me be given;
None but Christ in earth or heaven.

4. O that I might now decrease!
O that all I am might cease!
Let me into nothing fall;
Let me Lord be all in all.
