408SM, with refrain
    I HEAR Thy welcome voice
   That calls me, Lord, to Thee,
For cleansing in Thy precious blood
    That flowed on Calvary.
        I am coming, Lord,
        Coming now to Thee:
    Wash me, cleanse me, in the blood
        That flowed on Calvary.
2      Though coming weak and vile,
    Thou dost my strength assure;
Thou dost my vileness fully cleanse,
    Till spotless all and pure.
3      ’Tis Jesus calls me on
    To perfect faith and love,
To perfect hope and peace and trust,
    For earth and Heaven above.
4      ’Tis Jesus Who confirms
    The blessèd work within,
By adding grace to welcomed grace,
    Where reigned the power of sin.
Lewis Hartsough, 1828-1919
