Dear Friend of Hymnary,

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,

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.
