Here you will find the Poem Look Unto Me, And Be Ye Saved of poet John Newton
As the serpent raised by Moses Healed the burning serpent's bite; Jesus thus himself discloses To the wounded sinner's sight: Hear his gracious invitation, I have life and peace to give, I have wrought out full salvation, Sinner, look to me and live. Pore upon your sins no longer, Well I know their mighty guilt; But my love than death is stronger, I my blood have freely spilt: Though your heart has long been hardened, Look on me - it soft shall grow; Past transgressions shall be pardoned, And I'll wash you white as snow. I have seen what you were doing, Though you little thought of me; You were madly bent on ruin, But I said - It shall not be: You had been for ever wretched, Had I not espoused your part; Now behold my arms outstretched To receive you to my heart. Well may shame, and joy, and wonder, All your inward passions move; I could crush thee with my thunder, But I speak to thee in love: See! your sins are all forgiven, I have paid the countless sum! Now my death has opened heaven, Thither you shall shortly come. Dearest Saviour, we adore thee For thy precious life and death; Melt each stubborn heart before thee, Give us all the eye of faith: From the law's condemning sentence, To thy mercy we appeal; Thou alone canst give repentance, Thou alone our souls canst heal.
