Pass Me Not, O Gentle Savior

"The text would seem to have a biblical basis on the blind beggars' plea to Christ: "And, behold, two blind men sitting by the way side, when they heard that Jesus passed by, cried out, saying, Have mercy on us, O Lord, thou son of David. And the multitude rebuked them, because they should hold their peace: but they cried the more, saying, Have mercy on us, O Lord, thou son of David" (Matthew 20:29-31; See also Mark 10:46-52 and Luke 18: 35-43)." (Dr. C. Michael Hawn).(Click here to see my blog about the blind man).

Pass me not, O gentle Savior
Author: Fanny Crosby (1868)
Tune: [Pass me not, O gentle Savior] (Doane)

1 Pass me not, O gentle Savior,
hear my humble cry;
while on others thou art calling,
do not pass me by.

Refrain:
Savior, Savior,
hear my humble cry;
while on others thou art calling,
do not pass me by.

2 Let me at thy throne of mercy
find a sweet relief;
kneeling there in deep contrition,
help my unbelief. [Refrain]

3 Trusting only in thy merit,
would I seek thy face;
heal my wounded, broken spirit,
save me by thy grace. [Refrain]

4 Thou the spring of all my comfort,
more than life to me,
whom have I on earth beside thee?
Whom in heaven but thee? [Refrain]
