PRAYER OF THE PENITENT




Burdened with guilt, and pale with fear,
Lo, the repentant sinner stands;
To God directs his broken prayer,
And upward lifts his suppliant hands.


A conscious blush spreads oíer his face,
And anguish fills his labouring soul;
A solemn grief his looks express,
And flood of sorrow round him


But Jesus bids the floods be still,
And gently wipes his weeping eyes;
The only way to Zionís hill,
By Sinaiís smoking border lies.
