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?

My crimes are great, but don’t surpass
The pow’r and glory of Thy grace;
Great God, Thy nature hath no bound,
So let Thy pard’ning love be found.

Oh wash my soul from ev’ry sin!
And make my guilty conscience clean!
Here on my heart the burden lies,
And past offences pain mine eyes.
