Creation and the Fall and Depravity of Man

Image of tune Ninety-Third (may not be posted yet)

53 (S.M.) Augustus Toplady

Astonished and distressed,

I turn mine eyes within;

My heart with loads of guilt oppressed,

The seat of ev'ry sin.

What crowds of evil thoughts,

What vile affections there!

Distrust, presumption, artful guile,

Pride, envy, slavish fear.

Almighty King of saints,

These tyrant lusts subdue;

Expel the darkness of my mind,

And bring new light to view.

This done, my cheerful voice

Shall loud hosannas raise;

My soul shall glow with gratitude,

My lips proclaim Thy praise.
