(VERSE 1)

Depth of mercy! Can there be

Mercy still reserved for me?

Can my God his wrath forbear,

Me, the chief of sinners, spare?


(VERSE 2)

I have long withstood his grace,

Long provoked him to his face,

In my mind his word repressed,

Grieved him by each law transgressed.


(VERSE 3)

There for me the Saviour stands,

Shows his wounds and spreads his hands.

God is love! I know, I feel;

Jesus lives and loves me still.


(VERSE 4)

I my Master have denied,

I afresh have crucified,

And profaned his holy name,

Put him to an open shame.


(VERSE 5)

There for me the Saviour stands,

Shows his wounds and spreads his hands.

God is love! I know, I feel;

Jesus lives and loves me still.


(VERSE 6)

Now incline me to repent,

Let me now my sins lament,

My rebellion now deplore,

And resolve to sin no more.
