THE BACKSLIDER




How soon is the sweet savour lost
Of those delightful days,
When Jesus first his love disclosed,
And tuned my lips to praise.


His law I cheerfully obeyed,
And all his ways approved;
I read and heard, and sung and prayed,
And my Redeemer loved.


With eager steps and strong desire,
I followed after God;
And thought that I should never tire
Along the heavenly road.


But oh, how fickle is my frame,
How soon my passions rove!
God and his grace are still the same,
But I inconstant prove.
