I will go and tell my Savior
How I long His child to be;
At the cross I’ll seek and find Him;
He’s waiting there for me.

Refrain

I will carry all my sins to Jesus,
Tho’ I’ve nothing but my heart to give Him;
I will go and lay my burden at the fountain;
I’ll go and be forgiv’n.

I will tell Him I have wandered
From the path that leads to Heav’n;
With a contrite, broken spirit,
I’ll go and be forgiv’n.

Refrain

If my heart is truly humble,
He will not reject my prayer;
On the cross He died for sinners,
I know He saved me there.

Refrain

I will tell Him all my story,
With His mercy all my plea;
At the cross I’ll seek and find Him,
He’s waiting there for me.
