William J. Kirkpatrick (1838–1921)


Lord, my way­ward heart is brok­en,
May I come to Thee?
In Thy gen­tle arms of mer­cy
Hast Thou room for me?


Save me! Save me!
Weeping at the cross I bow;
Hear my hum­ble sup­pli­ca­tion:
Jesus, save me now.

Tho’ I long have grieved Thy Spir­it,
Long re­fused Thy grace,
Do not cast me from Thy pre­sence,
Do not hide Thy face.


Could my faith but touch Thy gar­ment,
Healed my soul would be;
Let Thy smile of sweet for­giv­eness,
Shed one beam for me.


Save me now, or I must per­ish,
Save me, I im­plore;
Speak those lov­ing words so ten­der,
Go and sin no more.
