PLEADING FOR GRACE
Sovereign Ruler, Lord of all,
Prostrate at Your feet I fall.
You are holy, wise and just;
I'm a creature of the dust.
All things move at Your command,
Governed by Your mighty hand.
Heaven, earth and hell I see,
Fulfill all Your wise decree.
Dares a man resist his Lord,
Stand against the sovereign God?
I will bow before Your throne
Seeking grace in Christ, Your Son.
Through His blood and righteousness,
Lord, I plead with You for grace-
If You will, You can, I know,
Grace and mercy to me show.
Will You, Lord, my soul forgive,
Grant this sinner grace to live?
I've no other hope but this-
Jesus' blood and righteousness.
Now I'm conquered by Your grace.
In the dust I hide my face.
Give me Christ, or else I die!
I upon Your grace rely.
Oh, for mercy, now I plead,
Grant me, Lord, the grace I need.
Turn, O turn, to me and say-
"All your sins are washed away:
In My Son your debt is paid,
He for you the ransom made!"
(Tune: Rock of Ages)
