1 What cannot the Almighty do
    For saving sinful man?
Able Thou art and willing too
    To form my heart again:
Thou shalt its old diseases cure,
    Its bent to sin remove,
And make and keep it always pure
    And always fill'd with love.

2 Hanging by humble faith on Thee,
    On Thee my Saviour stay'd,
I find in my infirmity
    Thy perfect strength display'd;
The' omnipotence of grace I feel
    In utter weakness shown,
And nothing is impossible
    To man with Jesus one.
