Representative Text

1 The deep defilement of the heart,
Oh, how can I endure!
The inner man in every part
Unholy and impure!

2 How can I look to thy abode,
Or how for mercy pray?
Oh, lead me to the Lamb of God,
And take my guilt away!

3 If thou hast shed one beam of heaven
On this dark soul of mine,
'Tis by the Holy Spirit given:
The glory shall be thine.
