Displeasure

When I have sinned, oh blessed Lord,
And failed to heed thy precious word,
When I have faltered on my way,
Draw me nigh and cleanse my soul I pray!

Unto thine arms, Lord, would I flee,
My only help is found in thee.
My sin and guilt I now confess,
clothe me with thine own righteousness.

Lord, hear me in my time of need,
And for thy child now intercede.
Thou only art my hope and stay,
Make haste to help me, Lord, I pray.
