    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
