1 Great is our guilt, our fears are great'
But naught shall prompt despair,
while open is the mercy-seat
to penitence and prayer.
2 Kind Intercessor! to thy love
This blest resource we owe:
Thy merits plead for us above,
While we implore below.
Hymnal: according to the use of the Protestant Episcopal Church in the United States of America, 1871
