THE CHIEF OF SINNERS




Depth of mercy! can there be
Mercy still reserved for me?
Can my God his wrath forbear?
Me, the chief of sinners, spare?

God is love; I know, I feel;
Jesus weeps and loves me still;
Jesus weeps and loves me still.



I have long withstood his grace,
Long provoked him to his face;
Would not hearken to his calls;
Grieved him by a thousand falls.

God is love; I know, I feel;
Jesus weeps and loves me still;
Jesus weeps and loves me still.



There for me the Savior stands;
Shows his wounds and spreads his hands;
God is love; I know, I feel;
Jesus weeps, and loves me still.

God is love; I know, I feel;
Jesus weeps and loves me still;
Jesus weeps and loves me still.



Now incline me to repent;
Let me now my fall lament;
Now my foul revolt deplore;
Weep, believe, and sin no more.

God is love; I know, I feel;
Jesus weeps and loves me still;
Jesus weeps and loves me still.
