1 LORD, I believe thou wilt forgive,
But help me to believe thou dost;
The answer of thy promise give,
Wherein thou causest me to trust;
The gospel-faith divine impart,
Which seals my pardon on my heart.
2 I do believe thy blood was spilt
To make my heart and nature clean,
But help me to believe thou wilt
This moment cleanse me from my sin;
Preserve me every moment thine,
A vessel pure of love divine.
