Jesus, I Come

Music by Ron Klusmeier
Words by Shirley Erena Murray
Tune Name: MARTINBOROUGH

Lyrics as Poetry

Jesus, I come
trusting your kindness,
knowing my need,
lost in my blindness:
you are the sense
giving life its meaning,
you are the truth
from the beginning.Now as I grow,
use and affirm me,
and when I doubt,
touch me, reclaim me;
when there is pain,
heal me and hold me—
cloak of your love
cover, enfold me.All that I am
Jesus, I offer,
all I achieve,
all I may suffer,
all whom I love
for your compassion,
all I hold dear
for your possession.
