1 Oh, the Lord is rich in mercy,
As his word will sweetly show,
And the fount will never fail us
In its free and blessed flow;
We have grieved the Holy Spirit,
Heeding not his loving call,
Yet, in bringing true contrition
There is mercy for us all.

Refrain:
Oh, there is mercy for all,
Mercy for you, mercy for me;
Oh, there is mercy for all;
Mercy for you and me.

2 Oh, the Lord is rich in mercy,
As he reigns in life above,
And we know ‘tis sweetly blended
With his holy name of love;
As we all are weak and sinful,
He will prove a friend indeed,
And his mercy, ever flowing,
Meets our ev’ry want and need. [Refrain]

3 Oh, the Lord is rich in mercy,
As we all may see and know,
And he waits to hear us calling,
Tender mercy to bestow;
We are prone to sin and error,
We are prone to go astray,
Yet his mercy it will reach us,
And will bring us home today. [Refrain]
