O Thou who hearíst when sinners cry,
Thoí all my crimes before Thee lie,
Behold them not with angry look,
But blot their memíry from Thy book.

Create my nature pure within,
And form my soul averse to sin,
Let Thy good Spirit neíer depart,
Nor hide Thy presence from my heart.

I cannot live without Thy light,
Cast out and banished from Thy sight;
Thy holy joys, my God, restore,
And guard me that I fall no more.


O thou that hearíst when sinners cry,, Stanza 3
