In mercy, not in wrath

In mercy, not in wrath, Rebuke me, gracious God!

Representative Text

1 In mercy, not in wrath,
Rebuke me, gracious God!
Lest, if Thy whole displeasure rise,
I sink beneath Thy rod.

Must I for ever mourn?
And wilt Thou not at length, O God,
In pitying love return?

4 O come, ere life expire,

For who shall sing Thy Name in death,
Or praise Thee in the grave?

5 Why should I doubt Thy grace,
Or yield to dread despair?
Thou wilt fulfil Thy promised word,
And grant me all my prayer.
