To God Whose Mercy Knows No Bounds

Representative Text

1 God whose mercy knows no bounds,
we gratefully direct our sounds,
O praise him, alleluia!
Within this space and then beyond
his presence stirs us to respond,

Alleluia, alleluia,
Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia!

2 The music that restores and heals
the Source of harmony reveals -
O praise him, alleluia!
He speaks in thunder and in sigh,
and, blessed on hearing we reply, (Refrain]

3 We thank you with uplifted voice,
this word of praise our joyful choice:
Alleluia, alleluia!
O gracious Spirit, may our song
to you eternally belong! [Refrain]
