1 Friend of sinners, hear my plea,
God be merciful to me;
Sinful though my heart be found,
Let Thy grace much more abound;
In the riches of Thy grace
Finds my soul its resting place.

Refrain:
Cleanse and clothe this heart of mine
With Thy righteousness divine.

2 Then, my advocate with God,
Grant forgiveness thro’ Thy blood;
With my heart I now believe,
Thy atonement I receive;
Freely with my mouth confess
Thee, my Lord, my righteousness. [Refrain]

3 Now I glory in Thy cross,
What was gain I count but loss;
Count but shame my former pride,
Self with Thee is crucified;
Cleanse me, clothe me in the dress
Of Thy spotless righteousness. [Refrain]

4 Trusting Thee, O Christ, my king,
Shall my soul Thy praises sing;
Saved by Thee, Thou Holy One;
Not by works which I have done;
Heart and tongue confess again,
Thine the glory, Lord, Amen. [Refrain]
