Can you identify yourself in Jesus’ parable of the Pharisee and the tax collector? Have you ever felt crushed under the weight of your sin, like the tax collector? Perhaps even doubted that God’s mercy was deep enough to reach you? Or have you ever been impressed with your own efforts to please Him, like the Pharisee? Perhaps even doubted that you needed God’s mercy in the first place?

Our opening hymn was written in 1739 by Charles Wesley, originally titled “For the Anniversary Day of One’s Conversion.” The poem’s eighteen stanzas opened with the lines:

 Be ever, ever giv’n
By saints below and saints above
 The church in earth and Heav’n

The next five stanzas set the theological context for the explosion of praise that would follow.
