Weak And Helpless And Burdened

(John MacDuff, "Family Prayers" 1885)

We come, weak and helpless and burdened,
to that cross where alone there is shelter and peace
for the guilty. We take refuge anew at the foot of
Thy cross, bringing our infinite unworthiness to
Thy infinite merit and all-sufficiency. Wash us,
blessed Saviour, in the fountain opened for sin and
for uncleanness. Receive us graciously. Love us
freely. Preserve against the world's snares, and
dangers, and temptations. May Thy love exercise
a paramount influence over us.
