Written for a sermon series on Malachi preached by Jay S. Thomas, while College Pastor at College Church, Wheaton, IL.


But for you who fear the Name
The Sun will rise and wash your stains
Your broken hearts which long for day
Inherit Thee, Jesus the great
Inherit Thee, Jesus the great

Please forgive our questions, poor
We seek to ask of thee no more
Your love is sure and this we see
Granted to us faithfully

Please forgive the offerings
We bring to you with hearts, unclean
You ask of us to give full hearts
To test your boon to impart

Please forgive this pompous pose
We sing not with pure wonder shown
You holiness of us demands
Pure lives to seek your command

Please forgive from mercy’s store
We seek to gain, and gain still more
Your hand is hard on evil ways
And wicked men turn not to grace
