475. Jesus, Thou Dost Not Sue In Vain

1 Jesus, Thou dost not sue in vain,
O ask what I can never give:
Thyself hast placed the power in man
His proffered Saviour to receive,
While knocking at the door Thou art,
And criest "My son, give me thy heart!"

2 Come in, Thou Supplicant divine,
I hear Thy voice and open now;
Take my poor heart, no longer mine,
Enter with all Thy fulness Thou;
Take my poor heart, ('tis all Thine own)
And never leave Thy humble throne.
