PRAYER FOR A SENSE OF SIN




O for that tenderness of heart
Which bows before the Lord,
Acknowledging how just thou art,
And trembles at thy word!


O for those humble, contrite tears
Which from repentance flow,
That consciousness of guilt which fears
The long-suspended blow!


Saviour, to me in pity give
The sensible distress,
The pledge thou wilt at last receive,
And bid me die in peace;


Wilt from the dreadful day remove,
Before the evil come;
My spirit hide with saints above,
My body in the tomb.


Oh, fill my soul with faith and love,
And strength to do thy will;
Raise my desires and hopes above
Thyself to me reveal.


---Alternative verses---


O, for that tenderness of heart,
Which bows before the Lord!
That owns how just and good thou art,
And trembles at thy word!


O, for that tenderness of heart, 
Which bows before the Lord! 
Owning how just and good thou art, 
And trembling at thy word! 


Oh, for those humble, contrite tears
Which from repentance flow!
That sense of guilt, which trembling fears,
The long-suspended blow!


Oh, for those humble, contrite tears 
Which from repentance flow! 
Oh, for sense of guilt, which fears
The long-suspended blow! 


Saviour, to me in pity give
For sin the deep distress,
The pledge thou wilt at last receive,
And bid me die in peace.
