11. Only Hope

Thankful: The Best Of Caedmon's Call
by Caedmon's Call



 

Depth of mercy, can there be
Mercy still reserved for me,
Can my God, your wrath forbear,
Me, the chief of sinners, spare

It's my only hope,
You're my only hope,
It's my only hope of Heaven,
At the cross forgiven

I have long withstood your grace,
King, provoked you to your face,
Would not harken to your calls,
Grieved you by a thousand falls,

There for me the Savior stands,
Shows his wounds and spreads His hands,
Face to face before the Son
And like Isaiah I'm undone

Depth of mercy, vast and free,
So much deeper than the sea,
God of love, you heard my cry,
Now into your open arms I fly

words by Charles Wesley and Randall Goodgame/ music by Randall Goodgame

Behind the Song:
Inspired by Charles Wesley’s hymn “Depth of Mercy” / "Wesley’s hymn “Depth of Mercy” is so powerful and raw. Some of the verses are so in-your-face honest that they are difficult to hear and even more difficult to sing. The first two verses of “Only Hope” come straight from that hymn. The rest of the song originates from me wrestling with the truth that, yes, there is mercy enough for even me. There’s mercy enough for all of us. The hard part is realizing the depth of our need. It’s not simply our only hope of Heaven, it’s our only hope of joy and life on earth." - Randall Goodgame
