Hymn of the Week - How Sad Our State by Nature Is

How sad our state by nature is 
Our sin how deep its stains 
When Satan takes our captive minds 
And binds us with his chains 
But there’s a voice of sovereign grace 
Within Your sacred Word 
“Come you hopeless, lost sinners come
And trust upon the Lord”

My soul obeys the mighty call
And runs to this relief
I have believed Your promise, Lord
Oh help my unbelief
To the fountain of Your own blood
Incarnate God, I fly
Here let me wash my spotted soul
From crimes of deepest dye

Stretch out Your arm, victorious King
My reigning sins subdue
Defeat the pride that dwells within
Keep Calvary in my view
A guilty, weak, and helpless soul
Into Your hands I fall
Lord, be my strength and righteousness
My Jesus, be my all

"Jesus, Be My All"
