With my sin-wounded soul,
To be made fully whole,
And Thy perfect salvation to see,
With my heart all aglow,
To be washed white as snow,
I am coming, dear Savior, to Thee.

Refrain

I am coming, dear Savior, to Thee,
I am coming, dear Savior, to Thee,
With my heart all aglow,
To be washed white as snow,
I am coming, dear Savior, to Thee.

Oh how long I have tried,
To resist nature’s tide!
All in vain I have sighed to be free;
In myself all undone,
’Neath the waves sinking down,
I am coming, dear Savior, to Thee.

Refrain

I Thy promise believe,
That in Thee I shall live,
Thro’ Thy blood shed so freely for me;
To obtain a pure heart,
And secure the good part,
I am coming, dear Savior, to Thee.

Refrain

To be Thine, wholly Thine,
Precious Savior divine,
With my all consecrated to Thee;
To be kept every hour,
By Thy love’s wondrous power,
I am coming, dear Savior, to Thee.
