1.MY Saviour, Thou Thy love to me
In shame,in want,in   pain hast showed;
For me, on the accursed tree,
Thou pouredst forth Thy guiltless blood;
Thy  wounds upon my heart impress,
Nor  aught shall the  loved stamp efface.

2.More hard than marble Is my heart,
And foul with  sins of deepest stain;
But Thou the mighty Saviour art,
Nor flowed Thy cleansing blood in vain :
Ah, soften, melt this rock, and may
Thy  blood   wash  all  these  stains away!

3.O that I, as a little child,
May follow Thee, and never rest
Till sweetly  Thou  hast  breathed Thy mild
And lowly mind into my breast!
Nor ever may we parted be,
Till I become one spirit with Thee.

4.Still let Thy love  point out  my way;
How wondrous things Thy love hath  wrought
I Still lead me, lest I go astray;
Direct my word, inspire my thought;
And if I fall, soon may I hear
Thy voice, and know that love is near.

5.In suffering be Thy love my peace,
In weakness be Thy love my power;
And when the storms of life shall cease,
Jesus,in  that  important hour,
In death as life be Thou my Guide,
And save me, who for me hast died.
