The Mistakes of My Life Lyrics
1 The mistakes of my life are many,
The sins of my heart are more,
And I scarce can see for weeping,
But I knock at the open door.
I know I am weak and sinful,
It comes to me more and more;
But since the dear Saviour has bid me come in,
I’ll enter the open door.
2 I am lowest of those who love Him,
I am weakest of those who pray;
But I come as He has bidden,
And He will not say me nay. [Chorus]
3 My mistakes His free grace will cover,
My sins He will wash away,
And the feet that shrink and falter,
Shall walk thro’ the gates of day. [Chorus]
