H. W. Baker


I AM not worthy, holy Lord,

That Thou shouldst come to me,

Speak but the word: one gracious word

Can set the sinner free.


I am not worthy; cold and bare

The lodging of my soul;

How canst Thou deign to enter there?

Lord, speak, and make me whole.


I am not worthy; yet, my God,

How can I say Thee nay,

Thee, who didst give Thy flesh and blood

My ransom-price to pay?


O come, in this sweet hallowed hour,

Feed me with food divine;

And fill with all Thy love and power

This worthless heart of mine.
