Depth of Mercy

Lyrics ~ Charles Wesley, 1707-1788

Music ~ William B. Bradbury, 1816-1868



Stanza 1:

Depth of mercy! Can there be

Mercy still reserved for me?

Can my God His wrath forbear,

Me, the chief of sinners, spare?



Stanza 2:

I have long withstood His grace,

Long provoked Him to His face,

Would not hearken to His calls,

Grieved Him by a thousand falls.



Stanza 3:

I my Master have denied,

I afresh have crucified,

Oft profaned His hallowed name,

Put Him to an open shame.



Stanza 4:

There for me the Savior stands,

Shows His wounds and spreads His hands.

God is love! I know, I feel;

Jesus weeps and loves me still.



Stanza 5:

Now incline me to repent,

Let me now my sins lament,

Now my foul revolt deplore,

Weep, believe, and sin no more
