1 As I come, O Savior, pleading
That my soul thou shouldst restore,
All I have I now am bringing,
Thine to be forevermore.

Thou hast said Thou wouldst receive me,
Nor my earnest plea deny;
Now I know I am accepted,
On Thy promise I rely.

2 I have done what Thou hast taught me,
From the world have turned aside;
Let me be a holy temple,
Where Thy presence may abide. [Refrain]

3 I am hoping in Thy mercy,
Not in that which I can do;
And I know Thou failest never,
To my soul Thou wilt be true. [Refrain]

4 Not a thing am I withholding,
All is on the altar laid;
Now I claim Thy promise boldly,
And no longer am afraid. [Refrain]
