In the Fullness of His Mercy

Representative Text

1 In the fullness of his mercy,
Christ my Saviour heard my prayer;
Stooped to save me, chief of sinners,
Tho' I oft refused his care.

In the fullness of his mercy,
Tenderly to me he came;
Sought and saved me, wondrous story,
Hallelujah to his name.

2 Thro' my wand'rings still he loved me,
Tho' I grieved him oft and sore;
Tho' I still his love rejected,
Longed to save me more and more. [Chorus]

3 Now his peace my heart is filling,
Now I'm happy all the day;
Since I've found his full forgiveness,
Since my sins are washed away. [Chorus]
