Drawn to the Cross which Thou hast blest

1
Drawn to the Cross which Thou hast blest,
With healing gifts for souls distrest,
To find in Thee my Life, my Rest,
  Christ crucified, I come.

Stained with the sins which I have wrought
In word and deed and secret thought;
For pardon which Thy Blood hath bought,
  Christ crucified, I come.
2
Weary of selfishness and pride,
False pleasures gone, vain hopes denied,
Deep in Thy wounds my shame to hide,
  Christ crucified, I come.

Thou knowest all my griefs and fears,
Thy grace abused, my misspent years;
Yet now to Thee, for cleansing tears,
  Christ crucified, I come.
3
I would not, if I could, conceal
The ills which only Thou canst heal;
So to the Cross, where sinners kneel,
  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.
4
To share with Thee Thy life divine,
Thy very likeness to be mine,
Since Thou hast made my nature Thine,
  Christ crucified, I come.

To be what Thou wouldst have me be,
Accepted, sanctified in Thee,
Through what Thy grace shall work in me,
  Christ crucified, I come.

Deep in thy wounds my shame to hide. Lord Jesus I love You. Your wounds are my home. I love You for being wounded for me. Thank You Lord.

This song really touched me. Verses 3 and 4 just resounded within my being.

3. Weary of selfishness and pride,

False pleasures gone, vain hopes denied,

Deep in Thy wounds my shame to hide,

Christ crucified, I come.

4. Thou knowest all my griefs and fears,

Thy grace abused, my misspent years;

Yet now to Thee, for cleansing tears,

Christ crucified, I come.

These two verses have really been my experience. I was raised in the Lord's recovery but still, after I was saved abused the Lord's grace and mispent a lot of time. Then I began to get weary of living in the world and just started to say "Christ crucified, I come!" This turning to Him has been the most enjoyable time of my life. I am the happiest I have ever been. The Lord just keeps working in me. I always enjoy the ministry and all of the new songs that are posted on this website. Praise the Lord! His work on the earth is moving!
