Hymn/Song Information

Drawn to the cross which Thou hast bless




Drawn to the Cross
which Thou hast blessed
With healing gifts
for souls distressed,
To find in Thee my life, my rest:
Christ crucified, I come!


Stained with the sins
which I have wrought
In word and deed
and secret thought,
For pardon which
Thy blood hath brought:
Christ crucified, I come!


Weary of selfishness and pride,
False pleasures gone,
vain hopes denied,
Deep in Thy wounds
my shame to hide:
Christ crucified, I come!


Thou knowest all
my griefs and fears,
Thy grace abused,
my misspent years;
Yet now to Thee,
my cleansing tears:
Christ crucified, I come!


I would not, if I could, conceal
The ills which only Thou canst heal,
So to the Cross,
where sinners kneel:
Christ crucified, I come!


Wash me, and
take away each stain,
Let nothing of my sin remain;
For cleansing,
though it be through pain:
Christ crucified, I come!


And then for work to do for Thee,
Which shall so sweet a service be
That angels well might envy me,
Christ Crucified, I come.


A life of labour, prayers, and love,
Which shall my heartís
conversion prove,
Till to a glorious rest above,
Christ crucified, I come.


To share with Thee
Thy Life Divine,
Thy Righteousness,
Thy Likeness mine,
Since Thou hast made
my nature mine,
Christ crucified, I come.


To be what Thou wouldst
have me be,
Accepted, sanctified in Thee,
Through what Thy grace
shall work in me:
Christ crucified, I come!
