This tune was first sung at the childhood home of Lauren Bock (which is located in Manhattan) in April, 2008.


Too many, Lord, abuse Thy grace
In this licentious day,
And while they boast they see Thy face,
They turn their own away.

The liberty our hearts implore
Is not to live in sin;
But still to wait at Wisdom's door,
Till Mercy calls us in.
