Lord, I Can Suffer Thy Rebukes
Isaac Watts, 1674-1748
|Lord, I can suffer thy rebukes,|
When thou with kindness dost chastise;
But thy fierce wrath I cannot bear:
O let it not against me rise.
2. Pity my languishing estate,
3. See how I pass my weary days
|4. Look, how the powers of nature mourn!|
How long, Almighty God, how long?
When shall thine hour of grace return?
When shall I make thy grace my song?
5. I feel my flesh so near the grave,
6. Depart, ye tempters, from my soul,
