The gift of God's mercy

Full Text

1 The gift of God’s mercy is lavished on me,
A wonderful presence divine;
From danger, from evil, forever I’m free,
The gift of God’s mercy is mine.

Refrain:
It is mine, all mine,
And nothing can take it away;
It is mine, all mine,
The gift of my Savior today.

2 The joy of his service is filling my heart,
The world with new light seems to shine;
I know in his kingdom my life is a part,
The joy of his service is mine. [Refrain]

3 The love of my Savior is given to me,
Each day brings a welcome new sign;
His wisdom, his blessing, around me I see,
The love of my Savior is mine. [Refrain]
