 And that Thou bidd’st me come to Thee,

 To Thee, whose blood can cleanse each spot,

 With many a conflict, many a doubt,
 Fightings and fears within, without,
 O Lamb of God, I come.

 Sight, riches, healing of the mind,
 Yea, all I need, in Thee to find,
 O Lamb of God, I come.

5. Just as I am, Thou wilt receive,
 Wilt welcome, pardon, cleanse, relieve,
 Because Thy promise I believe,
 O Lamb of God, I come.

 Now to be Thine, yea, Thine alone,
 O Lamb of God, I come.
