Estate of Fallen Man

Q. Into what estate did the fall bring mankind?

A. The fall brought mankind into an estate of sin and misery (Romans 5:12).

To God My Earnest Voice I Raise
#608, Trinity Hymnal (© 1990)
Arrangement by Edward Miller, 1790
From Psalm 142

To God my earnest voice I raise,
to God my voice imploring prays;
before his face my grief I show
and tell my trouble and my woe.

When gloom and sorrow compass me,
the path I take is known to thee,
and all the toils that foes do lay
to snare thy servant in his way.

O Lord, my Savior, now to thee,
without a hope besides, I flee,
to thee, my shelter from the strife,
my portion in the land of life.

Be thou my help when troubles throng,
for I am weak and foes are strong;
my captive soul from prison bring,
and thankful praises I will sing.
