Will The Pardoning God Despise


Will the pardoning God despise
A poor mourner’s sacrifice
One who brings his all to thee,
All his sin and misery;

Saviour, see my troubled breast,
Heaving, panting after rest,
Jesus, mark my hollow eye,
Never clos’d and never dry.

Listen to my plaintive moans,
Deep uninterrupted groans,
Keep not silence at my tears,
Quiet all my griefs and fears.

Good physician, show thine art,
Bind thou up my broken heart;
Aches it not for thee, my God,
Pants to feel the healing blood?

Jesus, answer all thy name,
Save me from my fear and shame
Sunk in desperate misery,
Sinner’s friend, remember me!
