A sinful man am I - Come unto Me
(Horatius Bonar/Johannes Thomas Rüegg)

Come unto Me.

1. A sinful man am I,
  therefore I come to thee;
to thee the Holy and the Just,
  that thou mayst pity me.

2. Wert thou not holy, Lord,
  why should I come to thee?
It is thy holiness that makes
  thee, Lord, so meet for me.

3. Wert thou not gracious, Lord,
  I must in dread depart;
it is the riches of thy grace
  that win and draw my heart.

4. Wert thou not righteous, Lord,
  I dare not come to thee;
it is a righteous pardon, Lord,
  alone that suiteth me.

5. Our God is love, – we come;
  our God is light, – we stay;
abiding ever in his word,
  and walking in his way.

6. Mercy and truth are his,
  unchanging faithfulness;
the cross is all our boast and trust,
  and Jesus is our peace.

7. We give thee glory, Lord,
  thy majesty adore;
thee, Father, Son, and Holy Ghost,
  we bless for evermore.

Horatius Bonar, Hymns of Faith and Hope III, 1878, 44-45.
