No, not despairingly - Confession and Peace
(Horatius Bonar/Johannes Thomas Rüegg)

Confession and Peace.

1. No, not despairingly
  come I to thee;
no, not distrustingly
  bend I the knee.
Sin hath gone over me,
yet is this still my plea,
  Jesus hath died,
  Jesus hath died.

2. Ah, mine iniquity
  crimson had been;
infinite, infinite,
  sin upon sin:
sin of not loving thee,
sin of not trusting thee,
  infinite sin,
  infinite sin.

3. Lord, I confess to thee
  sadly my sin:
all I am tell I thee,
  all I have been.
Purge thou my sin away.
wash thou my soul this day;
  Lord, make me clean,
  Lord, make me clean.

4. Faithful and just art thou,
  forgiving all;
loving and kind art thou
  when poor ones call.
Lord, let the cleansing blood,
blood of the Lamb of God,
  pass o'er my soul,
  pass o'er my soul.

5. Then all is peace and light
  this soul within;
thus shall I walk with thee,
  loved though unseen,
leaning on thee, my God,
guided along the road,
  nothing between,
  nothing between.

Horatius Bonar, Hymns of Faith and Hope III, 1878, 53-54.
Repetition of last line of each stanza added.
