Saint Peters 389t

Tune: The Sacred Harp, 1869
Alto: Mrs. Anna L. (Cooper) Blackshear, 1902
Lyrics: Charles Wesley, 1749
Meter: Long Meter (8,8,8,8)
How shall a lost sinner in pain
Recover his forfeited peace?
When brought into bondage again,
What hope of a second release?

Will mercy itself be so kind
To spare such a rebel as me?
And O! can I possibly find
Such plenteous redemption in Thee?
This is a major companion to Billings' Savannah on page 583.
