1 I came to the Lord with my heart full of sin,
Empty of purpose and troubled within.
My flesh had the victory, My heart sought release-
Lord, wilt Thou cleanse me and grant me Thy peace?
Create in me a clean heart, my Father;
Renew a right spirit in me.
Restore unto me the joy of Thy salvation;
May Christ be seen in me.
2 I cried to the Savior, "Forgive me, I pray."
He granted cleansing and sins fell away.
My bondage was ended, My heart was set free;
Lord, nevermore may I wander from Thee.
