Might I in thy sight appear, As the publican distrest, Stand, not daring to draw near, Smite on my unworthy breast, Groan the sinner's only plea, "God, be merciful to me!" O remember me for good, Passing through the mortal vale! Show me the atoning blood, When my strength and spirit fail; Give my gasping soul to see Jesus crucified for me!
