Representative Text

1. At the mercy seat I linger,
Where I see the crimson seal,
Of the Love that bowed and suffered,
Death and darkness to repeal;
There my rescued soul is kneeling,
Lost in wonder at the grace,
That removes the curse eternal,
From a lost and ruined race.

At the mercy seat I linger,
Lo! the sprinkled blood I see,
Hallelujah, I am ransomed!
Hallelujah, I am free!

2. Here the holy bread is broken,
To sustain my fainting heart,
Here the gracious word is spoken
That will make my grief depart;
Lo! thy sins are all forgiven,
Go in peace and sin no more!
Satan’s cruel chain is riven,
And my slavery is o’er. [Refrain]

3. Here I drink the cup of healing
That will soothe my troubled breast,
Filled with faith and hope celestial,
Now I enter into rest;
From the Spirit’s holy altar,
To my lips will leap the flame,
That inspires the constant spreading
Of my great Redeemer’s fame. [Refrain]
