Humble Penitent

8, 7 (with refrain)

Wm. Walker

Repeat after each line:

Refrain:

1.

Show pity, Lord; O Lord, forgive;

Let a repenting rebel live:

2.

Are not thy mercies large and free?

May not a sinner trust in thee?

3.

My crimes are great, but don't surpass

The power and glory of thy grace;

4.

Great God! thy nature hath no bound,

So let thy pardoning love be found.

5.

O wash my soul from every sin,

And make my guilty conscience clean!

6.

Here on my heart the burden lies,

And past offenses pain my eyes.

7.

My lips with shame my sins confess,

Against thy law, against thy grace;

8.

Lord, should thy judgments grow severe,

I am condemned, but thou art clear.

9.

Should sudden vengeance seize my breath,

I must pronounce thee just, in death;

10.

And if my soul were sent to hell,

Thy righteous law approves it well.

11.

Yet save a trembling sinner, Lord,

Whose hope, still hovering round thy word,

12.

Would light on some sweet promise there,

Some sure support against despair.

O pity me, dear Savior!

Is there any mercy here,

O pity me, dear Lord, and I'll

Sing halle hallelujah!
