#233: Depth of Mercy

(Part of a series singing through the hymnbook I grew up with: Great Hymns of the Faith)


Depth of mercy! Can there be

Mercy still reserved for me?

Can my God His wrath forbear –

Me, the chief of sinners, spare?


I have long withstood His grace,

Long provoked Him to His face,

Would not hearken to His calls,

Grieved Him by a thousand falls.


Now incline me to repent,

Let me now my sins lament;

Now my foul revolt deplore,

Weep, believe, and sin no more.


There for me my Savior stands,

Holding forth His wounded hands;

God is love! I know, I feel,

Jesus weeps and loves me still.
