1. I plead my need! as the Canaanite, Bartimaeus, the thief, and all who came to Him then.

2. I plead His lovingkindness and tender mercies! He delights to show mercy and is plenteous in mercy.

3. I plead His right to show mercy to whom He will! The leper cried, "Lord, if you will, you can make me whole."

4. I plead His power over all my enemies! He has all authority in heaven and earth.

5. I plead His efficacious blood! The blood of Jesus Christ, God's Son, cleanses us from all sin.

6. I plead His command to repent and believe! He does not merely invite sinners to repent and believe the gospel, He commands us to come.

7. I plead compliance to His command! "Lord, I do believe, help thou mine unbelief." "He that believeth on the Son, hath life." I believe; therefore, I have life.

8. I plead rest only in His person and work! "Lord, we believe and are sure that Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God."

Firm as the lasting hills,
His covenant shall endure,
Whose potent shalls and wills
Make every blessing SURE!

Henry Mahan, Pastor
