3097. Depth of Mercy

1 Depth of mercy! Can there be
mercy still reserved for me?
Can my God his wrath forbear,
me, the chief of sinners spare,
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,
grieved him by a thousand falls,
grieved him by a thousand falls.

3 I may master have denied,
I afresh have crucified,
oft profaned his hallowed name,
put him t an open shame,
put him to an open shame.

4 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,
Jesus weeps and loves me still.

5 Now incline me to repent,
let me now my sins lament,
now my foul revolt deplore,
weep, believe, and sin no more,
weep, believe, and sin no more.
