Upright, both in heart and will,
We by our God were made;

Upright, both in heart and will,
We by our God were made;
But we turned from good to ill,
And o’er the creature strayed;
Multiplied our wandering thought,
Which first was fixed on God alone,
In ten thousand objects sought
The bliss we lost in one.

From our own inventions vain
Of fancied happiness,
Draw us to thyself again,
And bid our wanderings cease;
Jesus, speak our souls restored
By love’s divine simplicity,
Re-united to our Lord,
And wholly lost in thee!
