O The Lord Is Rich In Mercy


Oh, the Lord is rich in mercy,
As his word will sweetly show,
And the fount will never fail us
In its free and blessed flow;
We have grieved the Holy Spirit,
Heeding not his loving call,
Yet, in bringing true contrition
There is mercy for us all.

Refrain:
Oh, there is mercy for all,
Mercy for you, mercy for me;
Oh, there is mercy for all;
Mercy for you and me.

Oh, the Lord is rich in mercy,
As he reigns in life above,
And we know ’tis sweetly blended
With his holy name of love;
As we all are weak and sinful,
He will prove a friend indeed,
And his mercy, ever flowing,
Meets our ev’ry want and need. [Refrain]

Oh, the Lord is rich in mercy,
As we all may see and know,
And he waits to hear us calling,
Tender mercy to bestow;
We are prone to sin and error,
We are prone to go astray,
Yet his mercy it will reach us,
And will bring us home today. [Refrain]
