Hymn/Song Information

Weak and irresolute is man The purpose




Weak and irresolute is man:
The purpose of to-day,
Woven with pains into his plan,
To-morrow rends away.


Some foe to his upright intent
Finds out his weaker part;
Virtue engages his assent,
But pleasure wins his heart.


Bound on a voyage of awful length,
Through dangers little known;
A stranger to superior strength,
Man vainly trusts his own.


But oars alone can ne’er prevail
To reach the distant coast;
The breath of heaven must swell the sail,
Or all the toil is lost.
