Hymn/Song Information

REPENTANCE AND FORGIVENESS




Lord, my sins like mountains rise,
To a vast tremendous height:
Reaching to the frowning skies,
Forming clouds before my sight.


Numerous as the starry spheres,
Are my aggravated deeds;
Now my guilty conscience hears
The just sentence which it dreads.


Whither can a creature go,
Guilty, wretched and unclean;
Who by daily actions show
The polluted source within.


Yet thy word, my gracious God,
Still affords a gleam of hope;
While oppressed beneath my load,
Thy kind mercy bears me up.


To the contrite who relent,
Thou wilt needful grace bestow;
May I then in truth repent,
And thy great salvation know.
