“Forgiveness!” What a Blessed Grace!Don Fortner
(Tune: #497 — When I Can Read My Title Clear —CM)

“Forgiveness!” What a blessed grace,
From God Who reigns on high,
For sinners of a chosen race,
Who weep, and mourn, and sigh!

This boundless gift of love divine
Extends to every crime.
On needy souls its glories shine
Unchanged by changing time.

Our sins as countless as the sands
Like mighty mountains rise;
But God’s forgiveness (vast expanse!)
Removes them from His eyes!

The blood of Christ, God’s darling Son,
Has put away my sin,
(Past, present, future — all I’ve done),
And makes this sinner clean!
