Hymn/Song Information

AN EVIL HEART




Astonished and distressed,
I turn mine eyes within;
My heart with loads of guilt oppressed,
The source of every sin.


What crowds of evil thoughts,
What vile affections there!
Envy and pride, deceit and guile,
Distrust and slavish fear.


Almighty King of saints!
These tyrant lusts subdue;
Drive the old serpent from his seat,
And all my powers renew.


Direct my passions right,
New principles instil;
Dispel the darkness of my mind,
And bow my stubborn will.


This done,ómy cheerful voice
Shall loud hosannas raise;
My heart shall glow with gratitude,
My lips be filled with praise.


---Alternative verses---


Astonished and distressed,
I turn mine eyes within;
My heart with loads of guilt oppressed,
The seat of every sin.


What crowds of evil thoughts,
What vile affections there!
Distrust, presumption, artful, guile.
Pride, envy, slavish fear.


Almighty King of saints!
These tyrant lusts subdue;
Expel the darkness of my mind,
And all my powers renew.


This done,ómy cheerful voice
Shall loud hosannas raise;
My soul shall glow with gratitude.
My lips proclaim thy praise.
