Great are the mercies of our God

Great are the mercies of our God

Published in 5 hymnals

Full Text

1 Great are the mercies of our God,
Far more than men or angels know;
To shew what God on man bestow'd,
Is more than all the world can do.

2 To save the wretched sons of men
The Lord has made his counsels known;
To make them heirs of grace again,
He send his dear beloved son.

3 He gave himself, he bled and died,
And bore for man that heavy load,
Till all demands were satisfi'd
And man was reconcil'd to God.

4 We were pluck'd up like burning brands
Out of a fierce consuming fire,
And plac'd into the Saviour's hands,
To be his own, his own entire.

5 No greater mercy can be found,
No greater proof of tender love.
What praises to our God redound:
God sent his Son from heav'n above!
