Sitting by the wayside




Sitting by the wayside,
sinful, weak and blind,
Waiting in my darkness for the day;
O Thou Saviour, Jesus,
Merciful and kind,
Hear me now, and take my sins away!

No one knows my sorrow,
no one cares for me—
Waiting in the darkness for the day;
Hear a sinner pleading,
pleading, Lord with Thee—
Jesus, come and take my sins away!



Long in darkness waiting,
weary, sad and lone,
How I long Thy glorious face to see!
O Thou blessed Jesus
make me all Thine own;
Speak the word, and Thou canst set me free!

No one knows my sorrow,
no one cares for me—
Waiting in the darkness for the day;
Hear a sinner pleading,
pleading, Lord with Thee—
Jesus, come and take my sins away!



Weary with my blindless,
waiting all the day,
Weary with my sorrow and my pain;
O Thou Son of David,
pass me not, I pray:
Leave me not in hopeless night again!

No one knows my sorrow,
no one cares for me—
Waiting in the darkness for the day;
Hear a sinner pleading,
pleading, Lord with Thee—
Jesus, come and take my sins away!



Sitting by the wayside,
sinful, weak and blind.
Is there any hope for one like me?
Something seems to whisper
in my darkened mind,
“Christ has power to set the sinner free.”

No one knows my sorrow,
no one cares for me—
Waiting in the darkness for the day;
Hear a sinner pleading,
pleading, Lord with Thee—
Jesus, come and take my sins away!
