Lyrics

Dear Lord, I’ve wandered far from Thee,
Far from Thee, far from Thee;
Show pity now and pardon me—
O save me at the cross.

Refrain

O Jesus, receive me,
No more will I grieve Thee,
Thou precious Redeemer,
O save me at the cross.

So vile and full of sin am I,
Sin am I, sin am I,
But no lost soul wilt Thou deny—
O save me at the cross.

Refrain

My broken heart I bring to Thee,
Bring to Thee, bring to Thee,
Thy healing balm is rich and free—
O save me at the cross.

Refrain

Dear Lord, my all I yield to Thee,
Yield to Thee, yield to Thee;
Thy servant I would ever be—
O save me at the cross.

Refrain

And now I’m leaning hard on Thee,
Hard on Thee, hard on Thee;
O wash my soul and set me free—
O save me at the cross.
