Drawn to the Cross which Thou hast blessed

Drawn to the Cross which Thou hast blessed,
with healing gifts for souls distressed,
to find in Thee my Life, my Rest,
Christ crucified, I come.


Weary of selfishness and pride,
false pleasures gone, vain hopes denied,
deep in Thy wounds my shame to hide,
Christ crucified, I come.


Wash me, and take away each stain,
let nothing of my sin remain;
for cleansing, though it be through pain,
Christ crucified, I come.


A life of labour, prayers and love,
which shall my heart's conversion prove,
till to a glorious rest above,
Christ crucified, I come.


To share with Thee Thy Life divine,
Thy Righteousness, Thy Likeness mine,
since Thou hast made my nature Thine,
Christ crucified, I come.


To be what Thou woulds't have me be,
accepted, sanctified in Thee,
through what Thy grace shall work in me,
Christ crucified, I come.
