    A hymn written by Joseph Hart. (in common meter)

    2 Corinthians 5:21 For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.

    "When I By Faith My Maker See"

    1. When I by faith my Maker see
    In weakness and distress,
    Brought down to that sad state for me
    Which angels can't express:

    2. When that great God to whom I go
    For help, amazed I view,
    By sin and sorrow sunk as low
    As I, and lower too:

    3. For all our sins we His may call,
    As He sustain'd their weight:
    How huge the heavy load of all,
    When only mine's so great!

    4. Then ravish'd with the rich belief
    Of such a love as this,
    I'm lost in wonder, melt with grief,
    And faint beneath the bliss.

    5. Prostrate I fall, ashamed of doubt,
    And worship love divine,
    Thus may I always be devout:
    Be this religion mine!

    6. In this alone I can confide;
    Here's righteousness enough!
    What's all the boast of nature's pride?
    What unsubstantial stuff!

    7. Rounds of dead service, forms, and ways,
    Which some so much esteem,
    Compared with this stupendous grace,
    What trivial trash they seem.

    8. Lord, help a worthless worm, so weak
    He can do nothing good;
    May all I act, or think, or speak,
    Be sprinkled with Thy blood.
