Hymn/Song Information

ORIGINAL DEPRAVITY




Lord I confess, a traitor born,
I early went astray;
And to each foolish lust became
An unresisting prey.


As I increased in years, I grew
More disinclined to good!
Trampled upon thy righteous law,
And Christís atoning blood.


Thy fear, behind my back I cast,
And with disdainful pride,
Shook from my neck thine easy yoke,
And all thy wrath defied.


Mercy, dear Lord, I now would crave,
While on my bended knee;
Oh may thy sovereign mercy shine
On one so vile as me.
