Hymn/Song Information

Backward we look with grief and shame On our




Backward we look with grief and shame
On our original;
On all the race what ruin came
Through our first father's fall!


What dreadful darkness veils the mind!
How obstinate the will!
To all that's good averse and blind,
And prone to all that's ill.


What mortal power from things unclean
Can pure productions bring?
Who can command a vital stream
From an infected spring?


Yet, mighty God, thy wondrous love
Can make us pure within:
Christ and his grace prevail above
The tempter, death, and sin.


The second Adam shall restore
Salvation to our race;
He saves by new creating power,
Through free and sovereign grace.
