"Mercy is welcome news indeed
To those who guilty stand;
Wretches who feel what help they need
Will bless the helping hand."
"Though I am a stranger to others and a wonder to myself, yet I know Him (Christ), or rather am known of Him. Where sin abounded Grace did much more abound."
"O! bring no price!
God's grace is free
To Paul, to Magdalene and me."
"None but Jesus
Can do helpless sinners good."
