God of my salvation come and help me out

1.GOD of my salvation, hear,
And help me to believe;
Simply do I now draw near,
Thy blessing to receive :
Full of sin, alas! I am,
But to Thy wounds for refuge flee :
Friend of sinners, spotless Lamb,
Thy blood was shed for me.

2.Standing now as newly slain,
To Thee I lift mine eye;
Balm of all my grief and pain,
Thy grace is always nigh :
Now as yesterday the same Thou art,
and wilt for ever be :

3.Nothing have I, Lord, to pay,
Nor can Thy grace procure;
Empty send me not away,
For I, Thou know'st, am poor :
Dust and ashes is my name,
My all is sin and misery :

4.No good word, or work, or thought
Bring I to gain Thy grace;
Pardon I accept unbought,
Thine offer I embrace,
Coming, as at first I came,
To take, and not bestow on Thee :

5.Saviour,from Thy wounded side
I never will depart;
Here will I my spirit hide
When I am pure in heart:
Till my place above I claim,
This only shall be all my plea :
