Frank B. St. John, 1878
I do not come because my soul|
Is free from sin and pure and whole
And worthy of Thy grace;
I do not speak to Thee because
I've never justly kept Thy laws
And dare to meet Thy face.
2. I know that sin and guilt combine
3. I know that often when I strive|
To keep a spark of love alive
For Thee, the powers within
Leap up in unsubmissive might
And oft benumb my sense of right
And pull me back to sin.
4. I know that, though in doing good
5. In Him alone my trust I place,|
Come boldly to Thy Throne of grace,
And there commune with Thee.
Salvation sure, O Lord, is mine,
And, all unworthy, I am Thine,
For Jesus died for me.
