Pass me not, O gentle Savior

1
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.
2
Let me at Thy throne of mercy
  Find a sweet relief;
Kneeling there in deep contrition,
  Help my unbelief.
3
Trusting only in Thy merit,
  Would I seek Thy face;
Heal my wounded, broken spirit,
  Save me by Thy grace.
4
Thou the spring of all my comfort,
  More than life to me;
Whom have I on earth beside Thee?
  Whom in heaven but Thee?

I sing this song as a believer in the past tense and personally to Jesus. You will get the gist.

Passed me not O Gentle Savior

Heard my humble cry

While on others you were calling

Did not pass me by

Jesus, Savior,

Heard my humble cry

While on others you were calling

Did not pass me by.

Here I at your throne of mercy

Found a sweet relief

Kneeling there in deep contrition

Cured my unbelief

I sing it slow, and the vision of Jesus I get moves me every time. A very beautiful sweet merciful Jesus is portrayed here.

I always used to think that the last stanza quoting from Psalm 73 was a bit out of place for a gospel song and something only said by more mature Christians rather than sinners seeking salvation, but now realise it is perfect in this context! When we come to the Saviour with a "wounded, broken spirit" we really have the sense that Christ is all we have on earth and in heaven as life, comfort, and healing. There's no other source that can satisfy a person in this state, and that is what the sinner needs to be brought to. Beautiful words.
