Hymn/Song Information

Remorseless wretches void of sense with




Remorseless wretches, void of sense,
with bold transgressions God defy,
And, for their multiplied offence,
oppressed with sore diseases lie.


Their soul, a prey to pain and fear,
abhors to taste the choicest meats;
And they by faint degrees draw near
to death's inhospitable gates.


Then straight to God's indulgent ear
do they their mournful cry address,
Who graciously vouchsafes to hear,
And frees them from their deep distress.


He all their sad distempers heals,
his word both health and safety gives;
And, when all human succor fails,
from near destruction them retrieves.


O then that all the earth with me
would God for this his goodness praise,
And for the mighty works which he
Throughout the wond'ring world displays!


With off'rings let his altar flame,
whilst they their grateful thanks express,
And with loud joy his holy Name
for all his acts of wonder bless.
