Verse 1
No, not despairingly
Come I to Thee;
No, not distrustingly
Bend I the knee
Sin hath gone over me,
Yet is this still my plea:
Yet is this still my plea:
Jesus hath died

Verse 2
Ah! mine iniquity
Crimson has been,
Infinite, infinite,
Sin upon sin;
Sin of not loving Thee,
Sin of not loving Thee,
Infinite sin

Verse 3
Lord, I confess to Thee
Sadly my sin;
All I am tell I Thee,
All I have been:
Purge Thou my sin away,
Wash Thou my sin this day;
Wash Thou my sin this day;
Lord, make me clean

Verse 4
Faithful and just art Thou,
Forgiving all;
Loving and kind art Thou
When poor ones call;
Lord, let the cleansing blood,
Blood of the Lamb of God,
Blood of the Lamb of God,
Pass o'er my soul

Verse 5
Then all is peace and light
This soul within;
Thus shall I walk with Thee,
The loved Unseen;
Leaning on Thee, my God,
Guided along the road,
Guided along the road,
Nothing between
