Drawn to the Cross which thou hast blessed

MHB
1.DRAWN to the Cross which Thou hast blessed
With  healing  gifts  for  souls  distressed,
To find in Thee my life, my rest:
Christ crucified, I come

2.Stained with the sins which I have
wrought In word and deed and secret
thought, For pardon which Thy blood hath bought:
Christ crucified, I come

3.Weary of selfishness and pride,
False pleasures  gone, vain hopes
denied, Deep in Thy wounds my shame to hide :
Christ crucified, I come

4.Thou  knowest all my griefs and fears,
Thy  grace   abused,   my  misspent years;
Yet  now  to  Thee,  for  cleansing tears :
Christ crucified, I come

5.1 would not,If I could, conceal
The ills which only Thou canst heal,
SO to the Cross, where sinners kneel:
Christ crucified, I come!

6. Wash me, and take away each stain,
Let nothing of my sin remain;
For cleansing, though It be through pain :
Christ crucified, I come I

7. To be what Thou wouldst have me be,
Accepted, sanctified in Thee,
Through what Thy grace shall work In me :
Christ crucified, I come
