A helpless soul that comes to thee
With only sin and misery.

3 Lord, I am sick--my sickness cure;
I want--do thou enrich the poor:
Under thy mighty hand I stoop;
Oh, lift the abject sinner up.

4 Lord, I am blind--be thou my sight;
Lord, I am weak--be thou my might:
A helper of the helpless be,
And let me find my all in thee.
