You Never Give Up on Me

God, I guess as I contemplate
What the most wondrous thing must be
I see myself in my erring state
But You never give up on me
Time and again I let You down
God, oh how sad You must be
But your mercy pours from Heaven’s throne
And You never give up on me

Down on my knees I plead for Your grace
I’ve failed You once again
I’m unworthy to seek Your face
But my sorrow is not in vain
From Calvary’s cross and Heaven above
Down to my errant heart
Flows Your crimson fountain of love
To cleanse my inner-most part

Everyone on this earth would walk away
If I failed them as I fail You
But You just love me anyway
In spite of the things I do
I cannot fathom such wonderful love
Or how vastly deep it must be
Yet over and over its depth You prove
For you never give up on me

Oh, the depth of the riches of the wisdom and[a] knowledge of God!
How unsearchable his judgments,
and his paths beyond tracing out!
34"Who has known the mind of the Lord?
Or who has been his counselor?"[b]
35"Who has ever given to God,
that God should repay him?"[c]
36For from him and through him and to him are all things.
To him be the glory forever! Amen.
