Montluçon Catherine Booth-Clibborn, 1882 (🔊 pdf nwc).

Oh, spotless Lamb, I come to Thee,
No longer can I from Thee stay;
Break every chain, now set me free,
Take all my sins away.

Refrain

Take all my sins away,
Take all my sins away,
My precious Savior, full of love,
Take all my sins away.

My hungry soul cries out for Thee,
Come, and forever seal my breast;
To Thy dear arms, at last I flee,
There only can I rest.

Refrain

Weary I am of inbred sin,
Oh, wilt Thou not my soul release?
Enter, and speak me pure within,
Give me Thy perfect peace.

Refrain
