1 O Lord, my soul convicted stands
Of breaking all Thy Ten Commands:
And on me justly might'st Thou pour
Thy wrath in one eternal shower.
2 But thanks to God, its loud alarms
Have warned me of approaching harms
And now, O Lord, my wants I see;
Lost and undone I come to Thee!
3 I know my worthless righteousness
Can ne'er Thy broken law redress,
Yet in the Gospel plan I see,
There's hope of pardon e'en for me.
4 There I hold with wonder, Lord!
That Christ hath to Thy Law restored
Those honors on th' atoning day,
Which guilty sinners took away.
5 Amazing wisdom, power, and love!
Displayed to rebels from above!
Do Thou, O Lord, my faith increase
To love and trust Thy plan of grace.
