221 (L.M.) Joseph Hart

Pity a helpless sinner, Lord,

Who would believe Thy gracious word,

But own my heart with shame and grief,

A sink of sin and unbelief.

Lord, in Thy house I read there's room,

And, venturing, behold I come;

But can there, tell me, can there be,

Amongst Thy children, room for me?

I eat the bread, and drink the wine;

But, oh! my soul wants more than sign!

I faint unless I feed on Thee,

And drink the blood as shed for me.

For sinners, Lord, Thou cam'st to bleed,

And I'm a sinner vile indeed;

Lord, I believe Thy grace is free;

Oh, magnify that grace in me.
