Search my heart

1 May 2022 | Humankind | 0 comments

Search me, O God, my action try

And let my life appear

As seen by Thine all-searching eye;

To mine my ways make clear.


Search all my sense and know my heart,

Who only canst make known

And let the deep, the hidden part

To me be fully shown.


Throw light into the darkened cells,

Where passion reigns within;

Quicken my conscience till it feels

The loathsomeness of sin.


Frank Bottome (1793-1870).
