Your mercy, my God, is the theme of my song

Your mercy, my God, is the theme of my song,
the joy of my heart, and the boast of my tongue;
your free grace alone, from the first to the last,
has won my affections, and bound my soul fast.

2. Your mercy in Jesus has freed me from hell;
its glories I’ll sing and its wonders I’ll tell;
this Jesus my friend, when he hung on the tree,
there opened the channel of mercy for me.

3. Your mercy is more than a match for my heart,
which wonders to feel its own hardness depart;
in awe at your goodness, I fall to the ground,
and weep to the praise of the mercy I found.

4. The door of your mercy stands open to all-
the poor and the needy, whoever shall call;
no sinner who comes seeking mercy today
is ever by Jesus sent empty away.

5. Great Father of mercies, your goodness I own,
and the covenant love of your crucified Son;
all praise to the Spirit, whose whisper divine
seals mercy and pardon and righteousness mine.
