Representative Text

1 To thee, O Lamb of God, to thee
I come, with all my fears;
With all the sins that burden me,
In penitence and tears.

Oh, receive me, Lord, I pray,
Weak and sinful though I am;
Take, oh, take my sins away;
Bless me, O thou bleeding Lamb!

2 Thy open wounds supply the balm
That heals the suff’ring heart;
‘Tis only this, thou precious Lamb,
Can life and health impart. [Refrain]

3 Be merciful, O Lam of God,
Hear this, my only plea,—
That thou canst cleanse me by thy blood,—
Have mercy then on me. [Refrain]

4 Thy saving blood, of greater worth
Than aught the world hath given,
Shall be my last blest song on earth,
And first glad theme in heaven. [Refrain]
