A DEBTOR TO MERCY I AM!
(Tune: How Tedious and Tasteless the Hours LMD)
A debtor to mercy I am!
Of covenant mercy I sing!
Through faith in my Savior, the Lamb,
My praises to God I must bring.
God's mercy preceded my birth,
And followed me all of my days;
Though I have no merit, nor worth,
My whole life His mercy displays.
When lost in rebellion and sin,
God's mercy protected me then;
And since I have been born again
In all things His mercy is seen!
My daily provisions, I know,
Come from my God's bountiful hand;
In happiness here, or in woe,
My God will His mercy command!
When sorrows and sins are no more,
And I'm with my glorified King,
I will my God's mercy adore,
Forever and ever I'll sing -
A vessel of mercy I am!
I'm saved by the mercy of God!
Rich mercy through Jesus, the Lamb,
Who bought me with His precious blood!
