1 Father of mercies, unto Thee
A penitent I come today;
The blood of Christ my only plea,
Thy precious word my hope and stay.

Refrain:
Out of the depths I cry unto Thee;
O God, be merciful,
O God, be merciful,
O God, be merciful unto me.

2 Perverse and wayward I have been,
A wanderer in forbidden ways;
Now would I turn away from sin,
And let my life proclaim Thy praise. [Refrain]

3 Thy work of grace, O Lord, complete,
By wondrous soul-transforming power;
Contrite I fall before Thy feet,
And look to Thee this sacred hour. [Refrain]

4 Help me to claim each promise mine;
My deep transgression far remove;
Make me, O Lord, entirely Thine,
And fill my soul with heavenly love. [Refrain]

19th Century "Robert Lowe Fletcher, the composer, will be at the South Avenue Congregational Church to-morrow, In the morning he will speak on 'The Conservative Life" and at night he will conduct an old-fashioned gospel singing service, when he will use some of his own compositions. Mr. Fletcher will ask the audience to assist him in the singing. Mr. Fletcher is an interesting person, and it is expected that he will attract a large number of strangers to the South Avenue Church." --from The Post-Standard, 26 November 1910 Go to person page >
