O Jesus, full of pardoning grace
1 O Jesus, full of pardoning grace,
More full of grace than I of sin,
Yet once again I seek Thy face;
Open Thine arms and take me in,
And freely my backslidings heal,
And love the faithless sinner still.
2 Thou know’st the way to bring me back,
My fallen spirit to restore;
O, for Thy truth andmercy’s sake,
Forgive, and bid me sin no more;
The ruins of my soul repair,
And make my heart a house of prayer.
3 Ah! Give me, Lord the tender heart,
That trembles at the approach of sin;
A godly fear of sin impart,
Impart, and root it deep within,
That I may dread Thy gracious power,
And never dare offend Thee more.
