Heavy laden, sick with sin,
Foes without, and foes within,
Lo! I come on bended knee,
Lamb of God, O hear Thou me.
Only Thou canst heal my woe,
Only Thou my grief dost know;
Thou didst die on Calvary,
Lamb of God, O pity me.

All my soul with guilt is dyed,
Thou for me wast crucified;
By Thy precious blood so free,
Lamb of God, O pardon me;
Savior, own me now and bless,
Clothe me in Thy righteousness;
Hear, O hear my prayer to Thee,
Lamb of God, O save Thou me.
