Hymn/Song Information

LIFE EMBITTERED BY SIN




My life’s a bitter sweet at best,
No lasting peace or settled rest;
My spirit joys, and then it mourns,
Grace and corruption rule by turns.


God’s just commands would I fulfil,
Yet oft neglect, and wander still;
My promises are soon forgot,
I purpose and perform it not.


My only help is in the Lord,
‘Tis he alone can strength afford;
But if his presence he deny,
I quickly tire and faint and die.
