Temptations -- From a Depraved Nature

I find then a law, that, when I would do good, evil is present with me. Rom. 7:21

Oh! who can free my troubled mind
From sin's oppressive load?
O wretched man! how shall I find
Acceptance with my God.

My soul with transport turns to thee,
To thee my Saviour turns;
Cleansed by thy blood, and saved by grace,
My soul no longer mourns.
