Hymn/Song Information

SELF EXAMINATION




Am I sincere and pure within,
Free from deceit, though not from sin,
A follower of the Lamb?
What are my principles and views,
The path I tread, the things I choose,
And what’s my end and aim?


Whose superscription do I bear,
What mostly love and mostly fear,
Whence do my thoughts incline?
And I a slave or am I free,
Does sin or grace bear rule in me
The world or things divine?


Uncertain, Lord, to thee I fly,
And beg the trial of thine ear;
Oh bow thy gracious ear.
Search and direct me what to do
My crimes forgive, my powers renew,
And keep me in thy fear.


Let true uprightness be my guard,
Let every sin be more abhorred,
My love to thee increase;
And when I at thy bar appear,
Grant me, of Lord, acceptance there,
Through thy distinguished grace.
