Author: Anon. Appears in 31 hymnals Matching Instances: 1 Lyrics: 1 Deep in the dust before Thy throne,
Our guilt and our disgrace we own;
Great God! we own th'unhappy name
Whence sprung our nature and our shame.
2 But whilst our spirits, filled with awe,
Behold the terrors of Thy law,
We sing the honors of Thy grace,
That sent to save our ruined race.
3 We sing Thine everlasting Son,
Who joined our nature to His own:
The second Adam, from the dust,
Raises the ruins of the first.
4 Where sin did reign, and death abound,
There have the sons of Adam found
Abounding life; there glorious grace
Reigns through the Lord our righteousness.
Amen. Topics: Self Abasement; Adam and Christ; Confession of Sin; Contrition; Grace Fulness of; Grace Magnified; Heart Natural; Law of God; Original Sin; Penitence; Repentance; Salvation By Grace Used With Tune: ASHWELL
