My sins have taken such a hold on me

1. My sins have taken
such a hold on me,
I am not able to look up to Thee;
Lord, I repent;
accept my tears and grief:
But Thou hast taken all my sins away,
And I in Thee dare now
look up and pray:
Lord, I believe;
help Thou mine unbelief.

2. Of nights unhallowed,
and of sinful days,
Of careless thoughts
and words and works and way,
Lord, I repent;
accept my tears and grief:
And in the life which
doth within me live,
And the forgiveness
which can all forgive,
Lord, I believe;
help Thou mine unbelief.

3. Of selfishness which makes
the soul unjust,
Envy and strife and every sinful lust,
Lord, I repent;
accept my tears and grief:
And in the blood,
which doth my pardon plead,
The truth and love,
which for me intercede,
Lord, I believe;
help Thou mine unbelief.

4. Of sins that as a cloud
have hid Thy face,
Of Thy care slighted,
and thy grievèd grace,
Lord, I repent;
accept my tears and grief:
In Love, that puts
sin’s envious veil aside,
Rending the veil of flesh
which for me died,
Lord, I believe,
help Thou mine unbelief.

5. For sin I mourn, the sin
that gave Thee pain;
Thine was the burden,
mine alone the stain;
Lord, I repent;
accept my tears and grief:
Christ is my joy;
and out of all distress
He doth deliver
with His righteousness:
Lord, I believe,
help Thou mine unbelief.
