Do not pass me by, dear Savior,
Tho’ so full of sin I am;
Tremblingly I seek Thy favor,
Help me, O Thou bleeding Lamb!


Jesus, Savior,
In my need to Thee I cry.
Jesus, Savior,
Bless me, do not pass me by.

I can only plead, dear Savior,
Bringing now myself to Thee,
All Thy promises so faithful,
And the love Thou gavest me.


Lord, the sins of all my lifetime
Now to Thee do I confess;
Turning from the guilt that was mine,
To Thy loving tenderness.


Do not pass me by, dear Savior,
Purify me, Lord, I cry;
O forgive me, keep me, save me,
Help me, do not pass me by!


Now He is my Lord and Savior,
For He did not pass me by;
In His love so wondrous tender,
He has heard my humble cry.
