Lord, we turn to you for mercy
Lord, we turn to you for mercy:
may our prayerful words express
something of our heartfelt sorrow
for the sins we now confess.
2 We have trusted far too often
in our human strength and skill;
we have proudly disregarded
what we know to be your will.
3 Yet by your immense compassion
you invite, accept, restore,
leading us to greater wholeness
than we ever knew before.
4 Your forgiveness lifts our burdens,
setting heart and spirit free
to fulfil our true potential,
all that we were meant to be.
5 For you teach a way of wisdom
we may clearly understand:
walking with the God of mercy
step by step, and hand in hand.
(BASED ON HOSEA 14)
