Representative Text

1 Saviour to Thee I come,
Burdened with sin;
Open the door I pray,
O let me in!
How can I longer stay,
My God, from Thee;
Thou art the Life, the Way,
All in all to me.

2 Pleading Thy grace alone,
Humbly I bow;
No other help I know,
Save me just now.
Heal Thou my broken heart,
Saviour divine;
On me Thy love bestow,
Make me wholly Thine.

3 Trusting Thy mercy, Lord,
Night turns to day;
Resting upon Thy word,
Doubts flee away.
Ever my path shall be
Where Thou hast trod;
I come, O Christ, to Thee
Blessed Lamb of God.
