VESSELS OF MERCY




Vessels, frail and earthen,
Full of grace Divine;
Lord of life and glory
What a love is Thine!
In my utter darkness
Thou hast deigned to shine.


If I had one merit
Mercy could not flow,
Favor not deserving
Boldly I may go,
Fulness of Thy mercy
Thus to surely know.


Poor, despised, yea, nothing,
What have I to claim?
All the wealth of Heaven
Mine in Jesus Name,
And the blessed reason
Is my very shame.


Emptied of earth's glory
And my own poor thought,
Gone the sad, long struggle,
That which self had wrought;
Mine for soul and body,
All the blood hath bought.
