Mercy

   I didn’t come to You demanding blessing,
 Though You have blessed my life abundantly.
 I didn’t ask for peace, no joy did I seek,
 For I knew the sin inside of me.
 I could only wonder at Your greatness;
 Creator God, Lord of all the Earth.
 And I could only bow
 Not understanding how
 You could offer me a brand-new birth.
  
 I cried out for mercy to look beyond my sin,
 To touch my heart within
 And make it clean.
 I knew I needed grace,
 Undeserved compassion,
 Hands that could fashion
 A new heart for me.
 Mercy’s what I need.
  
 Walking in the glory of Your presence
 Every day brings joy beyond compare.
 You have claimed my heart
 And right from the start
 You’ve helped me see who You meant me to be.
 You have granted peace beyond all knowing
 Joy far beyond my wildest dreams.
 Every day brings new
 Glimpses of You
 As I learn to follow where You lead.
  
 I cried out for mercy to look beyond my sin,
 To touch my heart within
 And make it clean.
 I knew I needed grace,
 Undeserved compassion,
 Hands that could fashion
 A new heart for me.
 Mercy’s what I need.
   

Ephesians 2:But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us, Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;)

Titus 3:But after that the kindness and love of God our Savior toward man appeared, Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost; Which he shed on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Savior;
