O Saviour, I Have Nought to Plead

O Saviour, I have nought to plead;
In earth beneath or heaven above,
But just my own exceeding need,
And Thy exceeding love.

The need will soon be past and gone,
Exceeding great, but quickly o’er;
The love unbought is all Thine own,
And lasts for evermore.

–Jane Crewdson
