1 Sick and weary, broken-hearted,
Bowed with sorrow, guilt, and woe,
Where, oh, where but unto Jesus
Can a helpless wand’rer go?

At his feet on bended knee,
This my humble, earnest prayer shall be,
Saviour, look in tender mercy,—
Have compassion, Lord, on me.

2 I have heard his invitation,
Yet I would not seek his face;
I have closed my heart against him,
And refused his offered grace. [Refrain]

3 Still he calls me by his Spirit,
Bids me turn to him and live;
If by faith I now receive him,
Oh, how freely he’ll forgive. [Refrain]

4 O my Saviour, help and lead me
To the fountain filled with blood;
Fold thy loving arms around me,
While I plunge beneath its flood. [Refrain]
