1. Rise, O my soul, the hours review,
When, awed by guilt and fear,
To heaven for grace thou durst not sue.
And found no rescue here:
2. Thy tears are dried, thy griefs are fled,
Dispelled each bitter care;
For heaven itself has lent its aid
To save thee from despair.
3. Hear, then, Q God! thy work fulfil,
And, from thy mercy's throne.
Vouchsafe me strength to do thy will,
And to resist mine own:
4. So shall my soul each pow'r employ
Thy mercy to adore;
While heaven itself proclaims with joy —
"One pardoned sinner more!"
