Mercy there was great and grace was free;
Pardon there was multiplied to me;
There my burdened soul found liberty,
Years I spent in vanity and pride,
Caring not my Lord was crucified,
Knowing not it was for me He died
By God's Word at last my sin I learned;
Then I trembled at the law I'd spurned,
Till my guilty soul imploring turned
Now I've giv'n to Jesus ev'rything;
Now I gladly own Him as my King;
Now my raptured soul can only sing
O the love that drew salvation's plan!
O the grace that brought it down to man!
O the mighty gulf that God did span
