An Exposition of Psalm 130, Part Two



https://www.truthforlife.org || By: Alistair Begg - The psalmist’s cry to the Lord for mercy is echoed in countless hearts every day. Like the psalmist, we rest our hope on the promises in His Word. Teaching from Psalm 130, Alistair Begg examines God’s forgiveness—a forgiveness that cost Him much and that causes our hearts to rightly fear Him. Faced with our guilt, we can find hope only in the steadfast love of the Lord and the redemption that is ours in Christ.

Great God Of Wonders

Great God of wonders! All Thy ways
Are matchless, Godlike and divine;
But the fair glories of Thy grace
More godlike and unrivaled shine,
More godlike and unrivaled shine.

Crimes of such horror to forgive,
Such guilty, daring worms to spare;
This is Thy grand prerogative,
And none shall in the honor share,
And none shall in the honor share

Angels and men, resign your claim
To pity, mercy, love and grace:
These glories crown Jehovah’s name
With an incomparable glaze
With an incomparable glaze.

In wonder lost, with trembling joy,
We take the pardon of our God:
Pardon for crimes of deepest dye,
A pardon bought with Jesus’ blood,
A pardon bought with Jesus’ blood.

O may this strange, this matchless grace,
This godlike miracle of love,
Fill the whole earth with grateful praise,
And all th’angelic choirs above,
And all th’angelic choirs above.

Who is a pardoning God like Thee?
Or who has grace so rich and free?
Or who has grace so rich and free?
