Suggested Tune Near the Cross (L.M. and refrain) W H Doane [click tune name to play midi]

1. Lord, you see how my sins weigh
heavy on my shoulder;
Roll them, roll them far away
Let me start all over.

    Cover up every sin
let me start all over
make me right with you again
let me start all over.


2.  I won't hide my sin from you,
I will lay me open;
though you see the bitter truth,
Still this sinner's hoping!



3.  In your image I was made
till I started fading
Sinful, broken, worn and frayed;
then a new creation!



4.  Christ alone can bring me home
to my Father's pleasure
There in joy he will bestow
love - His greatest treasure.
