Father, now Thy sinful child

Father, now Thy sinful child

Published in 2 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Father, now your sinful child
through your love is reconciled.
By your pard'ning grace I live;
daily still I cry, forgive.

2 Lord, forgive me, day by day,
debts I cannot hope to pay,
duties I have left undone,
evils I have failed to shun.

3 Pardon, Lord, and are there those
who my debtors are, or foes?
I, who by forgiveness live,
here their trespasses forgive.

4 Much forgiven, may I learn
love for hatred to return;
then my heart assured shall be
you, my God, have pardoned me.
