Representative Text

1 I’ll sing and rejoice in my Saviour’s dear name;
Great is His mercy toward me;
And ever His wonderful love I’ll proclaim;
Great is His mercy toward me.

Refrain:
Great is His mercy toward me,
Yes, Great is His mercy toward me,
He pardons my sin,
Gives glory within;
Oh, great is His mercy toward me.

2 In all that befalls me, I know Jesus cares;
Great is His mercy toward me;
He lightens each burden, each sorrow He shares;
Great is His mercy toward me. [Refrain]

3 He sought me when wand’ring in sin’s dreadful night;
Great is His mercy toward me;
He brought me from darkness to marvelous light,
Great is His mercy toward me. [Refrain]

4 Tho’ oft with neglect this dear Friend I pass’d by,
Great is His mercy toward me;
He opened His arms when to Him I did cry,
Great is His mercy toward me. [Refrain]

5 It cannot be told, all His goodness and love;
Great is His mercy toward me;
Oh, this is my song when I meet Him above,—
“Great is His mercy toward me.” [Refrain]
