Pass me not, O gentle Savior

Pass me not, O gentle Savior
Hear my humble cry!
While on others Thou art calling,
Do not pass me by.

Savior Savior, Hear my humble cry!
While on others Thou art calling,
Do not pass me by.

Let me at a throne of mercy,
Find a sweet relief:
Kneeling there in deep contrition
Help my unbelief.

Savior, Savior, Hear my humble cry!
While on others Thou art calling
Do not pass me by.

Trusting only in Thy merit
Would I seek Thy face:
Heal my wounded, broken spirit,
Save me by Thy grace

Savior, Savior, Hear my humble cry!
While on others Thou art calling,
Do not pass me by.

Thou the spring of all my comfort,
More than life to me!
Whom have I on earth beside Thee?
Whom in heav’n but Thee?

Savior, Savior, Hear my humble cry!
While on others Thou art Calling,
Do not pass me by.

Fanny Crosby was blind from birth but one night she had a dream.  She dreamed that the Lord Jesus was walking among the people in her church and touching each of those who would go to Heaven with Him.

As he got closer she started to fervently pray that He wouldn’t pass her by. When she awoke she penned the words to this lovely song and was able to describe in detail the people in her church even though she had never seen them. That was the only dream she had where she could see.
