Come, Great Deliv'rer Come

This hymn, also known as Come Great Deliverer, was written by American hymn-writer Fanny J Crosby (1820-1915).

It is almost always set to a tune which William Howard Doane (1832-1915) composed for it, - usually known as O HEAR MY CRY BE GRACIOUS NOW TO ME.



Instrumental - piano:


O hear my cry, be gracious now to me,
Come, Great Deliv'rer, come;
My soul bowed down is longing now for Thee,
Come, Great Deliv'rer, come.

I've wandered far away o'er mountains cold,
I've wandered far away from home;
O take me now, and bring me to Thy fold,
Come, Great Deliv'rer, come.

I have no place, no shelter from the night,
Come, Great Deliv'rer, come;
One look from Thee would give me light,
Come, Great Deliv'rer, come.

My path is lone, and weary are my feet,
Come, Great Deliv'rer, come;
Mine eyes look up Thy loving smile to meet,
Come, Great Deliv'rer, come.

Thou wilt not spurn contrition's broken sigh,
Come, Great Deliv'rer, come;
Regard my prayer, and hear my humble cry,
Come, Great Deliv'rer, come
