213 (L.M.) Anne Steele

Behold a sinner, dearest Lord,

Encouraged by Thy gracious word,

Would venture near to seek that bread

By which Thy children here are fed.

Do not the humble suit deny

Of such a guilty wretch as I,

But let me feed on crumbs, though small,

Which from Thy bounteous table fall.

I am a sinner, Lord, I own,

By sin and guilt I am undone.

Yet will I wait and plead and pray,

Since none are empty sent away.
