Savior, hear me, while before Thy feet I the record of my sins repeat, Stained with guilt, myself abhorring, Filled with grief, my soul outpouring. Canst Thou still in mercy think of me, Stoop to set my shackled spirit free? Raise my sinking heart, and bid me be Thy child once more!
Refrain: Grace there is my every debt to pay, Blood to wash my every sin away, Pow’r to keep me sinless day by day, For me, for me!
Yet, why should I fear—hast Thou not died That no seeking soul should be denied? To that heart its sins confessing, Canst Thou fail to give a blessing? By the love and pity Thou hast shown, By the blood that did for me atone, Boldly will I kneel before Thy throne, A pleading soul.
All the rivers of Thy grace I claim, Over every promise write my name; As I am I come, believing; As Thou art Thou dost, receiving, Bid me rise a free and pardoned slave, Master o’er my sin, the world, the grave, Charging me to preach Thy pow’r to save To sin-bound souls.
