“Yet, I Obtained Mercy!” — Don Fortner
(Tune: #400 — Jesus, and Shall it Ever Be? — LM)
1. Come, ransomed sinners, help me sing
The love of our Almighty King;
I strove against His fixed decree,
Yet I obtained His mercy free.
2. Despising all His boundless grace,
Madly, I chose the rebel’s race;
I said, “O’er me He’ll never reign.” —
Yet I obtained His mercy then!
3. Self-righteous — Ignorant of God,
But cleansed, and saved by Jesus’ blood,
No ruined sinner could be worse,
Yet I obtained His mercy thus.
4. Poor, needy sinners! Don’t despair,
To Calv’ry flee — and tarry there;
My glorious Surety’s merit view,
And you’ll obtain His mercy too.
