O my Sav­ior, hear me,
Draw me close to Thee;
Thou hast paid my ran­som,
Thou hast died for me;
Now by sim­ple faith I claim
Pardon through Thy gra­cious name;
Thou, my ark of safe­ty,
Let me fly to Thee.

O my Sav­ior, bless me,
Bless me while I pray;
Grant Thy peace to help me,
Take my fear away;
I be­lieve Thy pro­mise, Lord;
I will trust Thy ho­ly Word;
Thou, my soul’s Re­deem­er,
Bless me while I pray.

O my Sav­ior, love me,
Make me all Thine own;
Leave me not to wan­der
In this world alone;
Bless my way with light di­vine,
Let Thy glo­ry round me shine;
Thou, my rock, my re­fuge,
Make me all Thine own.

O my Sav­ior, guard me,
Keep me ev­er­more!
Bless me, love me, guide me,
Till my work is o’er;
May I then, with glad sur­prise,
Chant Thy praise be­yond the skies;
There with Thee, my Sav­ior,
Dwell for ev­er­more.
