GOD OF MERCY AND COMPASSION
1. God of mercy and compassion,
Look with pity upon me;
Father, let me call Thee Father,
>Tis thy child returns to Thee.
Jesus Lord, I ask for mercy,
Let me not implore in vain,
All my sins I now detest them,
Never will I sin again.
2. By my sins I have deserved
Death and endless misery;
Hell with all its pains and torments
And for all eternity.
3. By my sins I have abandoned
Right and claim to heaven above;
Where the saints rejoice forever
In a boundless sea of love.
4. See our Saviour, bleeding, dying;
On the Cross of Calvary;
To that cross my sins have nailed
Yet He bled and died for me.
