1 O wand’rer, knowing not the smile
Of Jesus’ lovely face,
In darkness living all the while,
Rejecting offer’d grace;
To thee Jehovah’s voice doth sound,
Thy soul He waits to free;
Thy God, He hath a ransom found,
There’s mercy still for thee.

There’s mercy still for thee!
There’s mercy still for thee!
Poor trembling soul,
He’ll make thee whole,
There’s mercy still for thee!

2 Tho’ sins of years rise mountains high,
And would thy hopes destroy,
Thy Saviour’s blood can wash away
The stains, and bring thee joy.
Now, lift thy heart in simple faith
To Him for safety flee;
While still the angels chant the strain,
“There’s mercy still for thee!” [Refrain]
