Hymn/Song Information

Lord at Thy feet a sinner lies And knock at mercy




Lord, at thy feet we sinners lie,
And knock at mercy's door;
With heavy heart and downcast eye,
Thy favour we implore.


On us the vast extent display
Of thy forgiving love;
Take all our heinous guilt away;
This heavy load remove.


Without thy grace, we sink opprest
Down to the gates of hell;
Oh, give our troubled spirit rest,
Our gloomy fears dispel.


'Tis mercy, mercy we implore;
We would thy pity move:
Thy grace is an exhaustless store, .
And thou thyself art love.


Oh, for thy own, for Jesus' sake. 
Our numerous sins forgive; 
Thy grace our rocky hearts can break, 
Heal us, and bid us live. 


Thus melt us down, thus make us bend.
And thy dominion own;
Nor let a rival more pretend
To repossess thy throne.


---Alternative verses---


Lord, at thy feet a sinner lies,
And knocks at mercy's door;
With heavy heart and downcast eye,
Thy favour he implores.


'Tis mercy, mercy we implore;
Oh, may thy bowels move:
Thy grace is an exhaustless store, .
And thou thyself art love.


In mercy now, for Jesus' sake.
Our many sins forgive;
Thy grace our rocky hearts can break,
And breaking soon relieve.
