Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

Full Text

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]
