DEPRAVITY LAMENTED




A wretched creature I am found,
Enslaved, polluted and unclean;
Bruises and festering sores unbound,
Pronouncing me a child of sin;
From head to feet my wounds extend,
Nor human art can succour lend.


Great God, the work is wholly thine,
The dreadful plague of sin to heal;
Renew my soul with power divine,
And ease the torturing pains I feel:
Here, Lord, I humbly wait thy word,
But speak, and I shall be restored.


Impress thine image on my heart,
And kindly tell me I am thine ;
True love and filial fear impart,
And let me to thine honour shine:
Then will I sing a Fatherís love,
On earth and in the realms above.
