Hymn/Song Information

ACCEPTABLENESS OF PRAYER




The prayers and praises of the saints,
Like precious odours sweet,
Ascend and spread a rich perfume
Around the mercy seat.


Not clouds of smoke, nor streams of oil,
Nor goats nor bullocks’ blood,
But penitential groans and tears
Are pleasing to our God.


To him the contrite sinner cries,
Nor shall he cry in vain;
The broken heart’s a sacrifice,
Which God will not disdain.
