Full Text

1 Will the pardoning God despise
A poor mourner's sacrifice
One who brings his all to thee,
All his sin and misery;

2 Saviour, see my troubled breast,
Heaving, panting after rest,
Jesus, mark my hollow eye,
Never clos'd and never dry.

3 Listen to my plaintive moans,
Deep uninterrupted groans,
Keep not silence at my tears,
Quiet all my griefs and fears.

4 Good physician, show thine art,
Bind thou up my broken heart;
Aches it not for thee, my God,
Pants to feel the healing blood?

5 Jesus, answer all thy name,
Save me from my fear and shame
Sunk in desperate misery,
Sinner's friend, remember me!
