2 My sin, O Lord, is now my grief,

Against my will it rages:
Thy grace alone can bring relief,,

While sin its warfare wages,
All that I need is known to Thee,
And now a part myself can see,

Help, Jesus, the sin-burdened!
3 Good Shepherd, bearest Thou the weak?

Sustain me in my weakness!
Thou great Physician of the sick,

Heal Thou my moral sickness!
A prey to death I helpless fall, -
For health and strength to Thee I call,

Save, Jesus,.or I perish!
4 To those who trust Thee—“Nothing fear!

I am the life!"-Thou criest;
Seeks not my soul, with strong desire,

The life which Thou suppliest?
Through all my sorrows Thou canst lead,
In death provide for every need-

Help, Jesus, the confiding.
5 I would do good, but still I fail, -

Must I thus always waver?
What grief it gives Thou knowest well.

Who shall my soul deliver,
And set the slave for ever free
From sin and death to live with Thee?-
I thank Thee, God, through Jesus!

8, 8, 8, 7.

German, 15th Century

To love and serve Thee is my share, And this Thy grace must give.

2 If life be long, I will be glad

The longer to obey:
If short, no laborer is sad,

To end this toilsome day.

3 Christ leads me through no darker rooms

Than He went through before;
And he that to God's kingdom comes

Must enter by this door.

4 Come, Lord, when grace has made me meet

Thy blessed face to see;
For if Thy work on earth be sweet,

What will Thy glory be?.

5 Then shall I end my sad complaints,

And weary, sinful days,
And join with the triumphant saints

That sing my Savior's praise.

6 My knowledge of that life is small;

The eye of faith is dim;
But 'tis enough that Christ knows all,
And I shall be with Him.

Richard Baxter, 1681

2 Thou, our Savior, from the throne 3 Mighty to redeem and save, Listenest to Thy people's moan;

Thou hast overcome the grave; Thou, the living Head, dost share Thou the bars of death hast riven, Every pang Thy members bear; Opened wide the bars of heaven; Full of tenderness Thou art,

Soon in glory Thou shalt come, Thou wilt heal the broken heart; Taking Thy poor pilgrims home; Full of power, Thine arm shall quell Jesus, then we all shall be, All the rage and might of hell. Ever, ever, Lord, with Thee.

Jaines G. Deck. 1838
