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.
I found this hymn the other night while having worship with my mother to welcome the Sabbath. I read the words aloud, and it broke my heart!! What a beautiful picture of the longsuffering love and mercy of our Saviour!! <3 A new favorite, for sure!!!
