Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

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.
