Representative Text

1 Thy tender voice I hear,
O Saviour, speak to me,
As Thou art coming near m soul,
To win it unto Thee.

Thou art coming, Lord,
Coming now to me,
O Come and e’er with me abide,
Thou Christ of Calvary.

2 Though many are my sins,
Thou comest in Thy grace,
By Thy atoning, cleansing blood,
My guilt-stains to efface. [Refrain]

3 Though I am poor and weak,
Thou comest in Thy might,
To shield me from the tempter’s snares,
And guide my steps aright. [Refrain]

4 Though merit I have none,
Thou comest in Thy love,
To robe me in Thy righteousness,
For realms of life above. [Refrain]
