Isaac Watts, 1674-1748
Show pity, Lord, O Lord, forgive,|
Let a repenting rebel live:
Are not thy mercies large and free?
May not a sinner trust in thee?
2. My crimes are great, but not surpass
3. O wash my soul from every sin,
4. My lips with shame my sins confess|
Against thy law, against thy grace:
Lord, should thy judgment grow severe,
I am condemned, but thou art clear.
5. Should sudden vengeance seize my breath,
6. Yet save a trembling sinner, Lord,
