I Am Coming to the Cross Lyrics

1 I am coming to the cross;
I am poor and weak and blind;
I am counting all but dross;
I shall full salvation find.

I am trusting, Lord, in Thee,
Blest Lamb of Calvary;
Humbly at Thy cross I bow;
Save me, Jesus, save me now.

2 Long my heart has sighed for Thee;
Long as evil reigned within;
Jesus sweetly speaks to me–
“I will cleanse you from all sin.” (Refrain)

3 Here I give my all to Thee,
Friends and time, and earthly store;
Soul and body Thine to be,
Wholly Thine forevermore. (Refrain)

4 In the promises I trust;
Now I feel the blood applied;
I am prostrate in the dust;
I with Christ am crucified. (Refrain)

5 Jesus comes! He fills my soul!
Perfected in Him I am;
I am every whit made whole:
Glory, glory to the Lamb! (Refrain)
