Pass me not, O gentle Savior

Pass me not, O gentle Savior,
  Hear my humble cry;
While on others Thou art calling,
  Do not pass me by.
  Savior, Savior,
  Hear my humble cry;
While on others Thou art calling,
    Do not pass me by.
Let me at Thy throne of mercy
  Find a sweet relief;
Kneeling there in deep contrition,
  Help my unbelief.
Trusting only in Thy merit,
  Would I seek Thy face;
Heal my wounded, broken spirit,
  Save me by Thy grace.
Thou the spring of all my comfort,
  More than life to me;
Whom have I on earth beside Thee?
  Whom in heaven but Thee?
Joann Rivera

We sang this song in church today. As soon as I started singing I felt God the Spirit move me, the tears started but they were tears of joy. The song has been in my heart all day. Thank you pastor Corey J Hodges and Sherman and this song brought joy to my heart through God’s amazing grace.

I feel in song at the age 15. When I was 32yrs old I was pregnant with my 3rd child. My water was broken for 7days I couldn't go into labour. That day I went to the hospital and the doctor sent me home to go into labour on my own. That night around 6pm my husband came home prepared our dinner after we eat he fell asleep. This song came into my spirit and I stated to sing and I prayed after an hour I went into labour. I had a son. The birth was rough because my water went. God kept us God is good. God bless you all.

Having intercede for my family this song came into my mind. I had to look at the lyrics because I couldn't find it in my hymnal.

I thank the Lord that He is in charge of our lives.

Thank You Jesus.

Thank You Jesus.

Jesus met me in my quiet time this morning while reading Matthew 20:29-34 about the two blind men who cry out, Have mercy on us! In reading the text we see:

Jesus passed by,

Jesus stood still,

Jesus had compassion.

As I pondered these things about my Lord Jesus, I began to sing this wonderful hymn to His glory and grace!

I woke up with this song on my heart on 9/18 and have been singing it ever since.

"Heal my wounded, broken spirit,

Save me by Thy grace."

My heart has been aching for Gods people and I pray that our eyes and hearts are open to his calling.

I dreamed last night that I was at an old fashioned hymn sing and this song was the final congregational hymn. Hadn't heard this song in over 30 years, so had to look up the lyrics. I'm amazed at how many others have recently been prompted by the Spirit and led to this site. Surely the Lord is calling His people to repentance. Many are called, but few are chosen. May we find mercy in His sight.
