“For Thy name’s sake, O LORD, pardon my iniquity” by John Calvin

“My sins are, indeed, like a heavy burden which overwhelms me, so that the multitude or enormity of them might well deprive me of all hope of pardon. But, Lord, the infinite glory of Thy name will not suffer Thee to cast me off.”

–John Calvin, Commentary on the Psalms, Vol. 4 in Calvin’s Commentaries (Grand Rapids: Baker, 2001), Calvin is commenting on Psalm 25:11.
