     9 And as Jesus passed forth from thence, he saw a man, named Matthew, sitting at the receipt of custom: and he saith unto him, Follow me. And he arose, and followed him. 10 And it came to pass, as Jesus sat at meat in the house, behold, many publicans and sinners came and sat down with him and his disciples. 11 And when the Pharisees saw it, they said unto his disciples, Why eateth your Master with publicans and sinners? 12 But when Jesus heard that, he said unto them, They that be whole need not a physician, but they that are sick. 13 But go ye and learn what that meaneth, I will have mercy, and not sacrifice: for I am not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.(KJV)

1. I lay my sins on Jesus, 
The spotless Lamb of God; 
He bears them all and frees us 
From the accursed load. 
I bring my guilt to Jesus 
To wash my crimson stains 
White in His blood most precious 
Till not a spot remains. 

2. I lay my wants on Jesus, 
All fulness dwells in Him; 
He healeth my diseases, 
He doth my soul redeem. 
I lay my griefs on Jesus, 
My burdens and my cares; 
He from them all releases, 
He all my sorrows shares. 

3. I rest my soul on Jesus, 
This weary soul of mine; 
His right hand me embraces, 
I on His breast recline. 
I love the name of Jesus, 
Immanuel, Christ the Lord; 
Like fragrance on the breezes 
His name abroad is poured. 

4. I long to be like Jesus, 
Meek, loving, lowly, mild; 
I long to be like Jesus, 
The Father’s holy Child. 
I long to be with Jesus 
Amid the heavenly throng 
To sing with saints His praises, 
To learn the angels’ song.
