“There is forgiveness with thee.” Ps. 130. 4

T. Gibbons   L.M.

1
Forgiveness! ’tis a joyful sound
To malefactors doomed to die;
Lord, may this bliss in me be found;
May I redeeming grace enjoy.

2
’Tis the rich gift of love divine;
’Tis full, out-measuring every crime;
Unclouded shall its glories shine,
And feel no change by changing time.

3
O’er sins unnumbered as the sand,
And like the mountains for their size,
The seas of sovereign grace expand,
The seas of sovereign grace arise.

4
For this stupendous love of heaven,
What grateful honours shall we show?
Where much transgression is forgiven,
May love in equal ardour glow.
