Lord, I come, I wait no longer;
Lo! I give myself to Thee;
Thou hast finished my redemption;
Thou hast rescued even me.

Refrain

O, the mercy so amazing;
O, the grace so full and free;
O, the love so strong and boundless,
That could rescue even me.

Let me tell the wondrous story;
Let me tell of Calvary;
Of the wonderful compassion
That could rescue even me.

Refrain

See! the cruel nails are driven
Through the Savior’s hands and feet;
See Him dying! Hear Him saying,
All is finished, ’tis complete.

Refrain

Yes, the sacrifice is offered,
Life is bought for you and me;
Lord, I come, I wait no longer,
Lo! I give myself to Thee.

Refrain

In my heart hope’s star is shining
With a radiance from above,
And my soul is sweetly resting
In the ocean of Thy love.
