While I keep silence, and concealMy heavy guilt within my heart,
While I keep silence, and concealMy heavy guilt within my heart,What torments doth my conscience feel!What agonies of inward smart!
I spread my sins before the Lord,And all my secret faults confess;Thy gospel speaks a pard’ning word,Thine Holy Spirit seals the grace.
For this shall every humble soulMake swift addresses to thy seat;When floods of huge temptations roll,There shall they find a bless’d retreat.
How safe beneath thy wings I lie,When days grow dark and storms appear;And when I walk, thy watchful eyeShall guide me safe from every snare.
