Let Me Wander No More

Jesus, friend of sinners, hear,
A feeble creature pray;
From my debt of sin set clear,
For I have nought to pay;
Speak, O speak, my kind release,
A backsliding soul, restore;
Love me freely, seal my peace,
And let me wander no more.


Though my sins as mountains rise,
And swell and reach to heaven.
Mercy is above the skies,
And I shall stand forgiven.
Mighty is my guilt’s increase,
But greater is thy mercy’s store!
Love me freely, seal my peace,
And let me wander no more.


From the oppressive weight of sin,
My struggling spirit free;
Blood and righteousness divine,
Can rescue even me.
Holy Spirit, shed thy grace,
And let me feel the softening shower;
Love me freely, seal my peace,
And let me wander no more.
