Hymn/Song Information

O God my sins are manifold against my




O God! my sins are manifold,
against my life they cry
And all my guilty deeds foregone,
up to Thy temple fly;
Wilt Thou release my trembling soul,
that to despair is driven?
"Forgive!" a blessed voice replied,"
and thou shalt be forgiven! "


My foemen, Lord! are fierce and fell,
they spurn me in their pride,
They render evil for my good,
my patience they deride;
Arise, oh King; and be the proud
to righteous ruin driven!
"Forgive!" an awful answer came,"
as thou wouldst be forgiven!"


Seven times, O Lord! I pardon'd them,
seven times they sinn'd again;
They practise still to work me woe,
they triumph in my pain;
But let them dread my vengeance now,
to just resentment driven!
" orgive!" the voice of thunder spake,"
or never be forgiven!"
