Saviour, let the grace supplied
And merited by Thee
Circumcise my nature's pride,
And heart impurity;
By Thy Spirit's law within*
Redeem me from my inbred stains,
Quite destroy the man of sin
And purge his last remains.
To Thy holy saving name
I for deliverance run;
Save from fear, and grief, and shame,
A soul by sin undone;
Lord, on me, even me exert
Thy right and power, and sovereignty,
Speak Thy name into my heart,
And Jesus prove to me.
