62 (C.M.) Isaac Watts

Blessed with the joys of innocence

Adam, our father, stood,

'Til he debased his soul to sense,

And ate th'unlawful food.

Now we are born a sensual race,

To sinful joys inclined;

Reason has lost its native place,

And flesh enslaves the mind.

While flesh, and sense, and passion reigns,

Sin is the sweetest good;

We fancy music in our chains,

And so forget the load.

Eternal Spirit! write Thy law

Upon our inward parts,

And let the second Adam draw

His image on our hearts.
