THE BONDAGE OF CORRUPTION




How sinful, Lord, am I!
Corrupt and all unclean;
Was born a slave to flesh and sense,
And still a slave remain.


My fetters I would break,
But all my efforts fail;
I long and strive, and mourn and pray,
Yet still my sins prevail.


Jesus, to thee I fly,
my helpless self resign;
Grant me at length the victory,
O’er every reigning sin.


Then will I sing of grace,
And oft the song renew;
‘Tis grace alone can keep me safe,
And make me holy too.
