REPENTANCE




With grief and shame I call to mind,
How base my conduct and unkind;
What thou, dear Lord, hast done for me,
And what returns I make to thee!


The follies of my youth and age,
Like gathering clouds, a storm presage;
Sick is my head and faint my heart,
Diseased, alas, in every part.


Sins long forgot come fresh to mind,
Oppressive now, no peace I find;
Like a poor captive held in chains,
My struggles but increase my pains.


Exhaustless source of every good,
Apply the Saviourís cleansing blood;
Thy gracious visits, Lord repeat,
And still conduct me near thy seat.
