There is no other name under Heaven given among men whereby we must be saved.@Acts 4:12

Robert Lowry (1826-1899)

Robert Lowry, in The Little Sunbeam, edited by W. Howard Doane (Cincinnati, Ohio: John Church, Jr., 1867), number 32 (🔊 pdf nwc). The Doctor frequently said that he regarded Weeping Will not Save Me as the best and most evangelistic hymn he ever wrote (Hall, p. 74).

Weeping will not save me—
Tho’ my face were bathed in tears,
That could not allay my fears,
Could not wash the sins of years—
Weeping will not save me.

Refrain

Jesus wept and died for me;
Jesus suffered on the tree;
Jesus waits to make me free;
He alone can save me.

Working will not save me—
Purest deeds that I can do,
Holiest thoughts and feelings, too,
Cannot form my soul anew—
Working will not save me.

Refrain

Waiting will not save me—
Helpless, guilty, lost, I lie;
In my ear is mercy’s cry;
If I wait I can but die—
Waiting will not save me.

Refrain

Faith in Christ will save me—
Let me trust Thy weeping Son,
Trust the work that He has done;
To His arms, Lord, help me run—
Faith in Christ will save me.

Refrain
