Hymn: “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.
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?
Closing Prayer: Lord, allow me, your servant, to go in peace. I have experienced your salvation which you have prepared for everyone. Uphold me as I seek to serve in your name. Amen.
