                              THE LUTHERAN HYMNAL
                 (St. Louis: Concordia Publishing House, 1941)

        1. Drawn to the Cross, which Thou hast blest
        With healing gifts for souls distrest,
        To find in Thee my life, my rest,
        Christ Crucified, I come.

        2. Thou knowest all my griefs and fears,
        Thy grace abused, my misspent years;
        Yet now to Thee with contrite tears,
        Christ Crucified, I come.

        3. Wash me and take away each stain;
        Let nothing of my sin remain.
        For cleansing, though it be through pain,
        Christ Crucified, I come.

        4. And then for work to do for Thee,
        Which shall so sweet a service be
        That angels well might envy me,
        Christ Crucified, I come.
