Hymn/Song Information

THE REPENTING PRODIGAL




The mighty God will not despise,
The contrite heart for sacrifice;
The deep-fetched sigh and secret groan,
Rise with acceptance to his throne.


He meets with tokens of his grace,
The trembling lip, the blushing face;
His bowels yearn when sinners pray,
And mercy bears their sins away.


Oppressed with grief, o’erwhelmed with shame,
He, pitying, heals their broken frame;
Hears their complaints, and quickly spies
His image in their weeping eyes.


Thou what a rapturous joy possessed
The tender parent’s throbbing breast,
When he beheld his son return,
And heard him all his follies mourn.
