Representative Text

1 "Rich in mercy," hear the message
Full of blessings from above;
God is calling to the wayward
In the sweetest tones of love:
"Rich in mercy," gracious accents,
Falling like a breath from Heav’n;
Souls are purchased with a ransom,
And the contrite are forgiv’n.

"Rich in mercy," wondrous story,
Let us sing it once again;
Sweeter music to the weary,
Than the angels’ glad refrain.

2 "Rich in mercy," dost thou hear it?
Lost one, weary, helpless, poor;
Wilt thou hasten to believe it?
And a Savior’s love implore:
Are you needy? God has riches
Far beyond what we can know,
And the greatness of His glory
Is not heard of here below. [Refrain]

3 "Rich in mercy," loud proclaim it!
May the heralds never cease
Until every soul led captive
Finds in Christ a sweet release;
Come, then, sinner, howe’er needy,
All thy wants to Jesus bring;
There are riches, and there’s mercy,
In the presence of the King. [Refrain]
