521 ~ Depth of Mercy


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 the Savior stands, Shows His wounds and spreads His hands; God is love! I know, I feel; Jesus weeps, and loves me still.
