1 Merciful God, O abounding in love
faithful to all who draw near You;
Hearing the cries of the humble in heart,
showing the Cross they may cling to.
Help I come, broken in sin;
found at the feet of Your mercy.
Father, forgive, may my sin be remembered no more.
2 Merciful God, O abounding in love
faithful though times we have failed You
selfish in though and uncaring in deed,
foolish in word and ungrateful
Spirit of God, conquer our hearts;
with love that flows from forgiveness.
cause us to yield and return to the mercy of God.
3 Merciful God, O abounding in love;
faithful to keep us from falling;
guiding our ways with Your fatherly heart,
growing our faith with each testing.
God speed the day struggles will end,
faultless we'll gaze on Your glory';
then we will stand overwhelmed by the mercy of God.
