In sorrow I lament, 

Before thy feet, my God, 

My passion, pride, and discontent, — 

My vile ingratitude. 


Ne'er was a heart more base 

And false than mine has been; 

More faithless to its promises, — 

More prone to every sin. 


How long, Lord, shall I feel 

These struggles in my breast? 

When wilt thou bow my stubborn will, 

And give my conscience rest?
