Weeping Will Not Save Me Though My Face

Weeping will not save you-
Though your face were bathed in tears-
That could not allay my fears-
Could not wash the sins of years!
Weeping will not save you.

Jesus wept and died for thee,
Jesus suffered on the tree;
Jesus waits to make thee free;
He alone can save thee.

Working will not save you-
Purest deeds that I can do-
Holiest thoughts and feelings too,
Cannot form my soul anew-
Working will not save you. [Refrain]

Waiting will not save you-
Helpless, guilty, lost you lie;
In your ear is mercy’s cry;
If you wait you’ll surely die:
Waiting will not save you. [Refrain]

Faith in Christ will save you-
Sinner, trust God’s risen Son;
Trust the work that He has done;
To His arms now quickly run:
Faith in Christ will save you. [Refrain]
