Depth of mercy! Can there be

Depth of mercy! can there be
mercy still reserved for me?
Can my God his wrath forbear?
me, the chief of sinners, spare?

2. I have long withstood his grace,
long provoked him to his face,
would not listen to his calls,
grieved him by a thousand falls.

3. Why to me this waste of love?
Ask my advocate above!
See the cause in Jesus’ face,
there before the throne of grace.

4. There for me my Saviour stands,
shows his wounds and spreads his hands.
God is love! I know, I feel;
Jesus weeps and loves me still.

5. Now, Lord, move me to repent,
let me now my sin lament;
now my proud revolt deplore,
weep, believe and sin no more.

6. If I rightly read your heart,
merciful in every part,
as before your throne I bow
pardon and accept me now.
