I am coming to the cross

I am coming to the cross;
I am poor, and weak, and blind;
I am counting all but dross;
I shall full salvation find.

I am trusting, Lord, in thee,
Thou dear Lamb of Calvary;
Humbly at thy cross I bow;
Save me, Jesus, save me now.

Long my heart has sighed for thee;
Long as evil reigned within;
Jesus sweetly speaks to me,
I will cleanse you from all sin.

Here I give my all to thee,–
Friends, and time, and earthly store;
Soul and body thine to be–
Wholly thine–forever more.

In the promises I trust;
Now I feel the blood applied;
I am prostrate in the dust;
I with Christ am crucified.

Jesus comes! he fills my soul!
Perfected in love I am;
I am every whit made whole;
Glory, glory to the Lamb.

William McDonald (1820 – 1901)
