DEPENDANCE ON GRACE ALONE




By night by day, at home, abroad,
I lift my fervent cry,
To thee my Saviour and my God,
Oh help, nor let me die.


Bowing before thy throne, I make
My never-ceasing prayer;
My strength will fail, my heartstrings break,
Shouldst thou refuse to hear.


Not outward dignity nor power,
Or this vain world’s increase:
But inward comforts I implore,
To see and taste thy grace.


My prayers no worthiness possess,
Defiled are they with sin ;
My heart is all unrighteousness,
Unholy and unclean.


Yet for the honour of thy name,
Lord grant me my requests;
Nor let a soul be put to shame,
Which on thy promise rests.


Then to thy name, my thankful tongue
Shall loud hosannas raise ;
My sighs shall be exchanged for songs,
And prayer be turned to praise.
