PLEADING FOR MERCY




Now Lord, I bow before thee
In humble posture fall;
For mercy I implore thee,
Oh hearken to my call.


Confusion now surrounds me,
To think how vile I am;
My wretched state confounds me,
And fills with grief and shame.


That time I have devoted,
To phantoms of the earth,
Which was to me allotted,
To seek a higher birth.


From earth, dear Saviour, draw me,
And fix my thoughts above;
If stubborn, deign to awe me,
Then great displays of love.


Oh let supreme affection,
To thee alone ascend;
And under thy direction,
May all my passions bend.


Thou canst alone sustain me,
In times of deep distress;
Thou wilt not then disdain me,
But wilt thy servant bless.


One look of thine all-cheering,
Will send my fears away;
Clouds fly at thine appearing,
And night is turned to day.
