Of the Sins of His Life

How many are mine iniquities and sins? make me to know my transgression and my sin. Job 13:23

My past transgressions pain me;
Lord, cleanse my heart within;
And evermore restrain me
From all presumptuous sin.

So let my whole behaviour,
Thoughts, words, and actions be,
O God, my strength and Saviour,
Acceptable to thee.
