VERSE 1

  Cp                                      G#          Cp
From the depths of woe I cry to Thee 
      C(top4)            G  Em
In trial and tribulation; 
            Cp                            G#        Cp
Bend down Thy gracious ear to me 
           C(top4)              G  Em
Lord, hear my supplication; 
      G      C                      D        A
If Thou rememberest every sin, 
  C      F#               D              A   G
Who then could Heaven ever win,
C(top4)                   G   E
Or stand before Thy presence?

VERSE 2

         Cp                       G#       Cp
Thy love and grace alone avail
      C(top4)           G  Em
To blot out my transgression
            Cp                     G#                Cp
The best and holiest deeds must fail
      C(top4)                    G      Em
To break sin’s dread oppression
      G              C                D             A
Before Thee none can boasting stand, 
  C      F#         D              A        G
But all must fear Thy strict demand,
C(top4)             G   E
And live alone by mercy
