1 Weeping will not save you—
Though your face were bathed in tears—
That could not allay my fears—
Could not wash the sins of years!
Weeping will not save you.

Jesus wept and died for thee,
Jesus suffered on the tree;
Jesus waits to make thee free;
He alone can save thee.

2 Working will not save you—
Purest deeds that I can do—
Holiest thoughts and feelings too,
Cannot form my soul anew—
Working will not save you. [Refrain]

3 Waiting will not save you—
Helpless, guilty, lost you lie;
In your ear is mercy’s cry;
If you wait you’ll surely die:
Waiting will not save you. [Refrain]

4 Faith in Christ will save you—
Sinner, trust God’s risen Son;
Trust the work that He has done;
To His arms now quickly run:
Faith in Christ will save you. [Refrain]
