Theme:Confession and Assurance



Take me O my Father take me,
Take me, save me through thy Son;
That which thou would have me, make me,
Let thy will in me be done.
Long from thee my footsteps straying
Thorny proved the way I trod;
Weary come I now and praying.
Take me to thy love my God.

Fruitless years with grief recalling
Humbly I confess my sin;
At thy feet, O Father falling,
To thy household take me in.
Freely now to thee I proffer
This relenting heart of mine;
Freely life and soul I offer.
Gift unworthy love like thine.

Once the world's redeemer dying
Bore our sins upon the tree;
On that sacrifice relying,
Now I look in hope to thee.
Father take me all forgiving
Fold me to thy loving breast;
In thy love foreverer living.
I must be forever blest.
