MERCY'S GATE IS STANDING OPEN
(Tune: Brethren, We Have Met To Worship #15 87.87.D)
Mercy's gate is standing open
By the purpose of our God:
He, Who found a way to ransom
Sinners by His Son's own blood,
Offers sinners free salvation
Through the blood of Christ, His Son;
But His grace He more than offers,
Else no sinner e'er could come.
Jesus Christ (Almighty Savior!)
Has the work completely done;
By His blood's infinite merits,
He redeemed God's chosen ones!
As a Forerunner in heaven
He has claimed the throne of God,
In the name of chosen sinners,
Whom He purchased with His blood.
Now He sends His Holy Spirit
To regenerate and call:
By effectual, sov'reign power
He will fetch them, one and all.
If you now will heed God's offer,
If you do on Christ believe,
You are chosen! Christ redeemed you!
By the Spirit you now live!
