Protestant Hymns of the Passion

I Am Coming to the Cross

1.
I am coming to the cross;
I am poor and weak and blind;
I am counting all but dross;
I shall full salvation find.

SpacerRefrain

SpacerI am trusting, Lord, in Thee.
SpacerBless-ed Lamb of Calvary;
SpacerHumbly at Thy cross I bow.
SpacerSave me, Jesus, save me now.

2.
Long my heart has sighed for Thee;
Long has evil reigned within;
Jesus sweetly speaks to me:
"I will cleanse you from all sin."

SpacerRefrain

3.
Here I give my all to Thee:
Friends and time and earthly store;
Soul and body Thine to be,
Wholly Thine forevermore.

SpacerRefrain

4.
In the promises I trust;
Now I feel the blood applied;
I am prostrate in the dust;
I with Christ am crucified.

SpacerRefrain

5.
Jesus comes! He fills my soul!
Perfected in Him I am;
I am every whit made whole:
Glory, glory to the Lamb!

SpacerRefrain
