53. Weeping Will Not Save Me

P.M.
1
Weeping will not save me;
 
Though my face were bathed in tears,
 
That could not allay my fears,
 
Could not wash the sins of years;
 
Weeping will not save me.
 
Jesus bled and died for me;
 
Jesus suffered on the tree;
 
Jesus waits to make me free;
 
He alone can save me!
2
Working will not save me;
 
Purest deeds that I can do,
 
Holiest thoughts and feelings too,
 
Cannot form my soul anew;
 
Working will not save me.
3
Waiting will not save me;
 
Helpless, guilty, lost I lie;
 
In my ear is mercy's cry;
 
If I wait I can but die;
 
Waiting will not save me.
4
Faith in Christ will save me;
 
Trust in Him, the risen One,
 
Trust the work that He has done;
 
To His arms I now may run;
 
Faith in Christ will save me.
