1 I love to wait at mercy’s gate,
In lowly faith and pray’r;
He hears my voice, and I rejoice
To find my Saviour there.
The mercy seat! by faith I meet
My Lord who comes to me;
But when the light breaks on my sight,
His face my eyes will see.
2 No thought or sigh escapes His eye,
He watches o’er my ways;
My pray’r is heard, and at His word
My mouth is filled with praise. [Refrain]
3 The mercy seat my soul will greet,
In sunshine or in woe,
Till life is fled, and I shall tread
Beyond the Jordan’s flow. [Refrain]Source: The Bright Array #54
