PARDON AND SANCTIFICATION IN CHRIST




How sad our state by nature is!
Our sin, how deep it stains!
And Satan binds our captive souls
Fast in his slavish chains.


But hark! a voice of sovereign grace
Sounds from the sacred Word;
“Ho, ye despairing sinners, come,
And trust upon the Lord!”


My soul obeys the Almighty call,
And runs to this relief;
I would believe Thy promise, Lord;
O help my unbelief!


To the blest fountain of Thy blood,
Incarnate God, I fly;
Here let me wash my spotted soul
From sins of deepest dye.


Stretch out thine arm, victorious King
My reigning sins subdue;
Drive the old dragon from his seat,
With all his hellish crew.


A guilty, weak, and helpless worm,
Into Thy hands I fall;
Be Thou my strength and righteousness,
My Saviour, and my all.


---Alternative verses---


How sad our state by nature is!
Our sin, how deep it stains!
And Satan holds our captive souls
Fast in his slavish chains.


How sad our state by nature is!
Our sin, how deep it stains!
And Satan holds our captive minds
Fast in his slavish chains.


But there's a voice of sovereign grace
Sounds from the sacred word;--
"Ho! ye despairing sinners! come
And trust a faithful Lord."


My soul obeys the gracious call,
And runs to this relief;
I would believe Thy promise, Lord;
O help my unbelief!


A guilty, weak, and helpless worm,
On Thy kind arms I fall;
Be Thou my strength and righteousness,
My Saviour, and my All.


A guilty, weak, and helpless worm,
Into Thy hands I fall;
Be Thou my strength and righteousness,
My Jesus, and my all.
