His Person

7.6. Iambic.

I need Thee, precious Jesus.
For I am full of sin;
My soul is dark and guilty,
My heart is dead within.

I need the cleansing fountain
Where I can always flee,
The blood of Christ most precious,
The sinner’s perfect plea.

I need Thee, precious Jesus,
For I am very poor:
A stranger and a pilgrim,
I have no earthly store.

I need the love of Jesus
To cheer me on my way,
To guide my doubting footsteps,
To be my strength and stay.
