Jesu the sinner's Friend to Thee Lost and undone




Jesus, the sinner’s Friend, to Thee,
Lost and undone, for aid I flee,
Weary of earth, myself, and sin:
Open Thine arms, and take me in.


Pity and heal my sin sick soul;
’Tis Thou alone canst make me whole;
Dark, till in me Thine image shine,
And lost, I am, till Thou art mine.


Awake, the woman's conquering Seed,
Awake and bruise the serpent's head;
Tread down thy foes, with power control
The beast and devil in my soul.


The mansion for thyself prepare,
Dispose my heart by entering there;
'Tis this alone can make me clean,
'Tis this alone can cast out sin.


At last I own it cannot be
That I should fit myself for Thee:
Here, then, to Thee I all resign;
Thine is the work, and only Thine.


What shall I say Thy grace to move?
Lord, I am sin, but Thou art love;
I give up every plea beside—
Lord, I am lost, but Thou hast died.


---Alternative verses---


Pity and heal my sin sick soul;
’Tis Thou alone canst make me whole;
Fallen, till in me thine image shine,
And lost, I am, till Thou art mine.


Pity and save my ruined soul;
  ’Tis Thou alone canst make me whole;
  Dark, till in me thine image shine, 
And lost, I am, till Thou art mine. 


The mansion for Thyself prepare,
Dispose my heart by entering there;
‘Tis this alone can make me clean,
‘Tis this alone can cast out sin.


What can I say Thy grace to move? 
Lord, I am sin, but Thou art love; 
I give up every plea beside— 
Lord, I am lost, but Thou hast died.
