Rescue Me

Lyrics 

Verse 1

Be Thou gracious to me, Father, hear my humble plea

Sin is crouching at my door and waiting there for me

I am weary with my crying, tears that ever flow

Let the bones which You have broken

    mend and heal and grow 

 

Chorus 

Heal me, with Your hand of mercy, Father

Cleanse me, with the precious blood

Shield me, I am safe in Your wings

When You rescue me 

 

Verse 2 

Every night my bed would swim with tears of mounting grief

Habits of old were my friend refusing me relief

Rather let me put away all that which never soothes

And replace it with Your Word, my nourishment, my food 

 

Bridge 

Rescue me, my Father, from the dark of night

I am in Your favor through the blood of Christ
