Thou canst this instant now forgive,
And stamp Thine image on my heart.

3 My heart, which now to Thee I raise,
I know Thou canst this moment cleanse;
The deepest stains of sin efface,
And drive the evil spirit hence.

4 Be it according to Thy word;
Accomplish now Thy work in me;
And let my soul, to health restored,
Devote its deathless powers to Thee.
