A SINNER SUBMITTING TO GOD




Weary of struggling with my pain,
Hopeless to burst this sinful chain,
At length I give the contest o'er,
And seek to free myself no more.


From my own works at last I cease—
God that creates must seal my peace;
Fruitless my toil, and vain my care,
Unless thy sov'reign grace I share.


Lord, I despair myself to heal;
I see my sin, but do not feel;
Nor shall I till thy Spirit blow.
And bid th' obedient waters flow;


'Tis thine a heart of flesh to give,
Thy gifts I only can receive;
Here then to thee I all resign,—
To draw, redeem, and seal is thine.
