I am coming to the cross

1
I am coming to the cross;
I am poor, and weak, and blind;
I am counting all but dross;
I shall full salvation find.
  I am trusting, Lord, in Thee,
Blessed Lamb of Calvary;
Humbly at Thy cross I bow,
  Save me, Jesus, save me now.
2
Long my heart has sighed for Thee;
Long has evil dwelt within;
Jesus sweetly speaks to me,
“I will cleanse you from all sin.
3
Here I give my all to Thee—
Friends and time and earthly store,
Soul and body Thine to be—
Wholly Thine forevermore.
4
In the promises I trust;
Now I feel the blood applied;
I am prostrate in the dust;
I with Christ am crucified.

Each time that I kneel at foot of the cross.. this is how I see myself

'..... coming to the cross;

.. poor, and weak, and blind;

... counting all but dross;

I shall full salvation find'

.... less than nothing.... in total humility/subjection to my faithful high priest.

William Gustavus Fisher was born October 14, 1835, Baltimore Maryland. Died August 13, 1912, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He was buried in Mount Moriah cemetery, Pennsylvania, Pennsylvania.

William Gustavus Fisher was the son of a German immigrant, he showed musical ability at an early age. When William was eight years old, he began singing in a German church in Baltimore. He learned to read music in a church singing class, and afterwards studied piano and organ. He learned book binding at J. B. Lippincott’s in Pennsylvania, but spent his evening studying and practicing music.

Fisher was an experienced trainer and leader of large bodies of singers of all ages, and was much sought after to lead choir and choruses in sacred music in Pennsylvania. He also taught singing, piano and music theory. He was closely connected with Welsh music festivals and directed the combined Welsh Societies at the bicentennial of the landing of William Penn (founder of Pennsylvania).

From 1858-68, Fisher was a Professor of Music at Girard College in Pennsylvania. Before leaving Girard, he started in the piano business, where he built up one of the most prosperous piano houses in the country. He was partner with John E. Gould until Gould‘s death in 1875. From that time, Fisher was sole proprietor of the business for a number of years, when he took his eldest son, Charles into partnership. He retired in 1898, and was succeeded by his son.
