THE PARDONING GOD




Great God of wonders! All thy ways
Display the attributes divine;
But countless acts of pardoning grace
Beyond thine other wonders shine:
Who is a pardoning God for thee?
Or who has grace so rich and free?


Crimes of such horror to forgive,
Such guilty, daring worms to spare;
This is thy grand prerogative,
And none may in this honour share:
Who is a pardoning God for thee?
Or who has grace so rich and free?


Angels and men resign your claim
To pity, mercy, love, and grace:
These glories crown Jehovah's name
with an incomparable blaze:
Who is a pardoning God for thee?
Or who has grace so rich and free?


In wonder lost, with trembling joy
We take the pardon of our God
Pardon for crimes of deepest dye,
A pardon bought with Jesus’ blood:
Who is a pardoning God for thee?
Or who has grace so rich and free?


Pardon from an offended God!
Pardon for sins of deepest dye!
Pardon bestowed through Jesus’ blood!
Pardon that brings the rebel right!
Who is a pardoning God for thee?
Or who has grace so rich and free?


O may this strange, this matchless grace,
This God-like miracle of love;
Fill the wide earth with grateful praise,
As now it fills the choirs above!
Who is a pardoning God for thee?
Or who has grace so rich and free?


---Alternative verses---


Great God of wonders! all thy ways
Are matchless, godlike, and divine;
But the fair glories of thy grace
More godlike and unrivalled shine:
Who is a pardoning God like thee?
Or who has grace so rich and free?


Great God of wonders! All thy ways
Display the attributes divine;
But the brightest glories of Thy grace
Above Thine other wonders shine:
Who is a pardoning God for thee?
Or who has grace so rich and free?


Great God of wonders, all Thy ways
Are righteous, matchless and divine;
But the blest triumphs of Thy grace
Most marvellous, unrivalled, shine;
Who is a pardoning God like Thee?
Or who has grace so rich and free?


Great God of wonders! All thy ways
Display thine attributes divine;
But the fair glories of thy grace
Beyond thine other wonders shine:
Who is a pardoning God for thee?
Or who has grace so rich and free?


Great God of wonders! All thy ways 
Are worthy of thyself,—divine; 
But the bright glories of thy grace 
Beyond thine other wonders shine:
  Who is a pardoning God for thee? 
Or who has grace so rich and free? 


Crimes of such horror to forgive,
Such guilty, daring worms to spare;
This is Thy grand prerogative,
And none can in that honour share:
Pardon, O God, is only Thine;
Mercy and grace are all divine.


Such deep transgressions to forgive,
Such guilty, daring worms to spare;
This is thy grand prerogative,
And none may in this honour share:
Who is a pardoning God for thee?
Or who has grace so rich and free?


Such deep transgressions to forgive,
Such guilty, daring worms to spare;
This is thine own prerogative,
And in the honour none shall share:
Who is a pardoning God like thee?
Or who has grace so rich and free?


O may this glorious, matchless love,
This God-like miracle of grace,
Teach mortal tongues, like those above,
To raise this song of lofty praise:
Who is a pardoning God for thee?
Or who has grace so rich and free?


In wonder lost, with trembling joy,
We hail the pardon of our God,
Pardon for crimes of deepest dye,
A pardon traced in Jesus' blood.
To pardon thus is Thine alone;
Mercy and grace are both Thine own.


Pardon from an offended God!
Pardon for sins of deepest dye!
Pardon bestowed through Jesus’ blood!
Pardon that brings the rebel nigh!
Who is a pardoning God for thee?
Or who has grace so rich and free?


Pardon from an offended God!
Pardon for sins of deepest dye!
Pardon bestowed through Jesus’ blood!
Pardon that brings the rebel nigh!
Where is the pardoning God like thee?
Or where the grace so rich and free?


Soon shall this strange, this wondrous grace,
This perfect miracle of love,
Fill the wide earth, while sweeter praise
Sounds its own note in heaven above:
Who is a pardoning God like Thee?
Or who has grace so rich, so free?


O may this strange, this matchless grace,
This godlike miracle of love,
Fill the wide earth with grateful praise,
And all th' angelic choirs above;
Who is a pardoning God like thee?
Or who has grace so rich and free?


O may this glorious, this matchless love, 
This God-like miracle of grace; 
Teach mortal tongues, like those above, 
To raise the song of lofty praise: 
Who is a pardoning God like thee? 
Or who has grace so rich and free?
