Lyrics

Suff’ring Savior, hear my cry;
To Thy loving arms I fly;
Bless me, Savior, bless me now,
While to Thee I humbly bow.

Refrain

Savior, Savior, bless me now,
While to Thee I humbly bow.

Thou alone can keep my feet
From the paths of sin so deep;
Blest Redeemer, Savior kind,
Cause Thy face on me to shine.

Refrain

Let me feel Thy saving power
Sweetly flow this very hour;
Fill my soul with love divine;
Take my heart, O Lord: ’tis Thine.
