If in my breast thou righ'st alone
O find the lurking rival out
And drag the traitor from the throne.

2 Would earth's delusive trifling charms

Yea choice itself, Lord, Ia m thine;
Maintain ty right, or let me die,
Ere from thy love my soul decline.

4 In my unsteady heart wou'd rove
IAnd well thou know'st its treach'rous frame,)
If ought below, or ought above,
Wou'd share or quenceh the sacred flame;

5 Chase the curs'd object from my soul,
Thence, thence the twining mischief tear;
Reign thou the sovereign of the whole
Be LORD of ev'ry motion there.
