O Jesus, at Thy cross I fall!
From sin and shame I fly;
And on Thy hallowed name I call:
Save, Jesus, or I die.

Refrain

Now save me, save me, gracious God!
As now to Thee I fly;
Oh, wash me in Thy cleansing blood!
Oh, wash me, or I die!

Speak pardon, Lord! show pity now;
What yet have I to flee?
See! at Thy feet I humbly bow;
My life I give to Thee.

Refrain

God of almighty power and love,
Say, is there grace for me?
Oh, let my cry Thy pity move!
Oh, let me fly to Thee.

Refrain

Yes, bless the Lord, I now believe
Thy blood was shed for me!
Glory to God! I now receive
A pardon full and free.
