PENITENTIL SIGHS




Borne down with guilt, and full of fear,
From day to day I weep alone;
But rising signs and flowing tears
Will not for past misdeeds atone.


With heart-felt sorrow I confess,
How sinful and how vile Iíve been;
But pleading guilty pays no debt,
Still I confess and still I sin.


To Jesus then, the sinnerís friend,
Iíll lift the penitential eye;
Jesus is mighty to redeem,
And whither else can sinners fly!


Vouchsafe, Oh Lord, a tender look,
Forgive my sins, relieve my pain;
The vilest need not then despair,
If I thy favour should obtain.


If aught I am, if aught possess,
I owe it, Lord, to none but thee;
Thine was the work, and thine the gift,
Thine let the lasting glory be.
