Full Text

1 Unclean! unclean! and full of sin,
From first to last, alas, I've been!
Deceitful is my heart:
Guilt presses down my burdened soul,
But Jesus can the waves control,
And bid my fears depart.

2 When first I heard his word of grace,
Ungratefully I hid my face,
Ungratefully delayed:
At length his voice more powerful came,
"'Tis I" he cried "I'm still the same,
Thou need's not be afraid."

3 My heart was changed--in that same hour
My soul confessed his mighty power,
I shed a grateful tear;
Then listened still to hear his voice,
Again he said, "In me rejoice,
'Tis I, thou need's not fear."

4 "Unworthy of thy love," I cried,
"Freely I love," he soon replied,
"On me thy faith be stayed;
I'm Jesus still, the sinner's friend.
Thou need'st not be afraid."
