MERCY TO THE CHIEF OF SINNERS




Long had I trod the downward road,
To the infernal pit ;
Mercy appeared, to stop my course
And turn my wandering feet.


'T was this subdued my stubborn heart,
And showed my sins forgiven ;
T is this that still new strength imparts,
And leads me on to heaven.


This bears my drooping spirits up,
When various griefs surround ;
The vilest sinner now may hope,
Since I have mercy found.
