The Deep Defilement Of The Heart


The deep defilement of the heart,
Oh, how can I endure!
The inner man in every part
Unholy and impure!

How can I look to thy abode,
Or how for mercy pray?
Oh, lead me to the Lamb of God,
And take my guilt away!

If thou hast shed one beam of heaven
On this dark soul of mine,
‘Tis by the Holy Spirit given:
The glory shall be thine.
