10 Here, Lord, my soul convicted stands
Of breaking all thy ten commands:
And on me justly might'st thou pour
Thy wrath in one eternal show'r.

11 But thanks to God, its loud alarms
Have warn'd me of approaching harms;
And now, O Lord, my wants I see,
Lost and undone, I come to thee.

12 I know my fig-leaf righteousness
Can ne'er thy broken law redress;
Yet in thy gospel plan I see
There's hope of pardon e'en for me.

13 There, I behold with wonder, Lord!
That Christ hath to thy law restor'd
Those honors of th' atoning day,
Which guilty sinners took away.

14 Amazing wisdom, pow'r and love,
Display'd to rebels from above!
Do thou, O Lord, my faith increase
To love and trust thy plan of grace.
