GREAT GOD, IN ME SHOW FORTH YOUR GRACE
Great God, I bow before Your throne,
A guilty, helpless wretch undone:
Your sov'reign rights as God I own,
And hope for grace in Christ, Your Son.
Should I for sin reap endless death
And prove a vessel of Your wrath,
I know that You are just and true
For endless death is sin's just due.
Lord, You're the Potter, I'm but clay;
It's right for You to have Your way:
It is Your right to save or kill
And grant mercy to whom You will.
Prostrate I lie before Your throne;
I plead for grace and grace alone:
Make me a vessel of mercy
Display Your glory, Lord, in me.
Great God, in me show forth Your grace:
By Christ's shed blood my sin erase,
Impute to me His righteousness,
Impart to me His holiness.
