6 Grace has enabled me to love
Thy holy law and will,
But sin has not yet ceas'd to move,
It tyrannizes still.

7 Hence often fill'd with dread alarms,
My peace and joy subside,
And I'v employ for all the arms
The gospel has supply'd.

8 Thus diff'rent powers within me strive,
While opposites I feel,
I grieve, rejoice, decline, revive,
As sin or grace prevail.

9 But Jesus hath his promise past;
Sin with the body dies,
And grace in all his saints at last
Shall gain its victories.
