405 – Show Pity Lord

405 Show Pity Lord.mp3

E                                              G#m7
Show pity, Lord, O Lord, forgive,
F#m7               Am
Let a repenting rebel live:
E                      D#m
Are not Thy mercies large and free?
F#m7               B7
May not a sinner trust in Thee?

My crimes are great, but not surpass
The power and glory of Thy grace:
Great God, Thy nature hath no bound,
So let Thy pardoning love be found.

O wash my soul from every sin,
And make my guilty conscience clean;
Here on my heart the burden lies,
And past offenses pain my eyes.

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.

Yet save a trembling sinner, Lord,
Whose hope, still hovering round Thy Word,
Would light on some sweet promise there,
Some sure support against despair.
