1A broken ALTAR, Lord, thy servant rears,
2Made of a heart and cemented with tears;
3 Whose parts are as thy hand did frame;
5 A HEART alone
6 Is such a stone,
7 As nothing but
8 Thy pow'r doth cut.
9 Wherefore each part
10 Of my hard heart
11 Meets in this frame
12 To praise thy name.
13 That if I chance to hold my peace,
15Oh, let thy blessed SACRIFICE be mine,
16And sanctify this ALTAR to be thine.
