Gainst Thee Thou holy just and wise




'Gainst thee thou holy, just and wise,
'Gainst thee, how high my crimes arise!
'Gainst thee, whom angels bow before!
'Gainst ther,whom saints with awe adore!


'Gainst thee,thou good and gracious God!
'Gainst thee, my only safe abode!
'Gainst thee, on whom my all depend!
'Gainst thee, my Father and my Friend!


'Gainst thee,who made thy richest grace
To shine so bright before my face!
Who gave thy Son my soul to save
From hell, from sin, and from the grave!


Why did I let my Saviour go?
Why did I grieve his Spirit so?
Why did my heart so stubborn prove,
To sin against such wondrous love?


Why did I so forget the Lord?
Why did I so neglect his word?
Why scorn to bow the stubborn knee
To him who bow'd the heav'ns for me.


Why am I not in deep despair?
Why does one gleam of hope appear?
Was ever creature so deprav'd?
Was ever such a sinner sav'd?


O let me now in dust repent,
And mourn my will to evil bent:
Weep on mine eyes, relent my heart,
And let my conscience feel the smart!


While Jesus shows his pard'ning blood
I 11 mourn my vile ingratitude;
Lord, take this wand'ring heart of mine
And set it as a seal on thine.
