154. DEPTHS OF MERCY

Christ in Song,

1.
Depth of mercy!  can there be
Mercy still reserved for me?
Can my God his wrath forbear?
Me, the chief of sinners, spare?

2.
I have long withstood his grace,
Long provoked him to his face,
Would not hearken to his calls,
Griev'd him by a thousand falls.

3.
There for me the Saviour stands,
Shows his wounds and spreads his hands;
God is love!  I know, I feel;
Jesus weeps, and loves me still.
