BACKSLIDER'S RETURN




Oh why, my treacherous heart,
Dost thou revolt from God?
Why my unsteady feet depart
From the celestial road?


How pleasant were those days;
I in his service spent;
Not carnal joys nor sinful ways,
Could yield me such content.


His arm was my support,
His love inflamed my breast;
To him I quickly did resort,
And found a sacred rest.


Fain would I now return,
Great God, direct my way!
Nor at a guilty rebel spurn,
Who grieves he went astray.
