PENITENCE
278
2 I smite upon my troubled breast,             4 Nor alms, nor deeds that I have done, With deep and conscious guilt opprest,        Can for a single sin atone;
Christ and His cross my only plea;             To Calvary alone I flee;
O God, be merciful to me. ,                    O God, be merciful to me.
3 Far off I stand with tearful eyes, Nor dare to lift them to the skies; But Thou dost all my anguish see;
i. 0 God, be merciful to me.
5 And when, redeemed from sin and hell, With all the ransomed throng I dwell, My raptured song shall ever be, God has been merciful to me.
Rev. Cornelius Elven, 1852

2  Fresh the wounds that sin hath made; " Hear the prayers I oft have prayed,
And in mercy send me aid.
3  Helpless, none can help me now;
I Cheerless, none can cheer but Thou; Suppliant, Lord, to Thee I bow.
4  Thou the true physician art; Thou, 0 Christ, canst health impart, Binding up the bleeding heart.
5  Other comforters are gone; Thou canst heal, and Thou alone, Thou for all my sin atone.
Rev. Godfrey Thring, 1866
