THE REIGN OF SIN




How heavy is the night
That hangs upon our eyes,
Till Christ with his reviving light
Over our souls arise!


Our guilty spirits dread
To meet the wrath of Heaven;
But, in his righteousness arrayed,
We see our sins forgiven.


Unholy and impure
Are all our thoughts and ways;
His hands infected nature cure
With sanctifying grace.


The powers of hell agree
To hold our souls in vain;
He sets the sons of bondage free,
And breaks the cursed chain


Lord, we adore thy ways
To bring us near to God;
Thy sovereign power, thy healing grace,
And thine atoning blood.

The powers of hell agree
To hold our souls in vain;
He sets the sons of bondage free,
And breaks the accursed chain


Lord, we adore thy ways
To bring us near to God;
Thy sovereign power, thy healing grace,
And thy atoning blood.
