Pass me not, O gracious Father!

Sinful, wretched though I be:

Though You might in truth condemn me,

Let Your mercy fall on me.



Love of God, so everlasting,

Blood of Christ, so rich and free,

Grace of God, so strong and saving,

Magnify them all in me!


Pass me not, O blessed Savior!

Let me hear Your gracious call:

I'm a guilty, helpless sinner,

Savior, at Your feet I fall.


Pass me not, O mighty Spirit!

You can cause the dead to live:

Speak the Word of saving power,

Give me faith, and make me live.


Pass me not, a poor, lost sinner,

If You will, You can save me:

Reach down with Your hand of mercy,

Saving others, Lord save me.


(Tune: 'Tis So Sweet to Trust in Jesus)
