Representative Text

1 O come to the mercy seat, needy one, come,
No longer in sickness and poverty roam;
For healing and riches are waiting thee there,
And all thou requirest, in answer to prayer.

O come to the mercy seat,
Come to the mercy seat;
Come with thy sorrows,
And tell them in prayer.

2 O come to the mercy seat , come as thou art,
Wait not from thy sins and thy burdens to part;
There only thy soul can find blessed release,
Thy burdens be lifted, thy wanderings cease. [Refrain]

3 O come to the mercy seat, Jesus is there;
He knows that for thee is the comfort of prayer;
When storms beat around thee, and passions are stirred,
The winds and the waves He can still with a word. [Refrain]
