A Poem….Wherever I turn my eyes within   Leave a comment

Wherever I turn my eyes within,

What loads of guilt, what depths of sin,

Like oceans deep, like mountains high,

Call for the vengeance of the sky!

Deceit, ambition, lust, and pride,

Within the human heart reside;

There Satan, seated on his throne,

Claims the whole empire as his own.

But Jesus comes! the mighty Lord!

He wields the bright celestial sword;

The strong man armed is forced to fly,

While angels chant the victory.

Glory to God in heaven above,

On earth sweet peace and sacred love;

Good-will to men—the foe is foiled,

And God and sinners reconciled.

Come, mighty conqueror of the heart,

Subdue my soul in every part;

Ascend your long-usurped throne:

Oh, be my king, and reign alone.
