Wonderful Mercy

Full Text

1 Wonderful fountain that cleanseth from sin,
Wonderful comfort, abiding within,
Peace rolling in like the waves of the sea;
Wonderful freedom, when Christ makes me free.

Wonderful, wonderful mercy I sing,
Wonderful grace of my wonderful King:
Wonderful favor from Heaven above,
Wonderful mercy and wonderful love.

2 Wonderful promises, meeting my need,
Wonderful answers, my pray'rs far exceed;
Wonderful help for the work of each hour;
Strength for the conflict, victorious pow'r. [Chorus]

3 Wonderful mansion that shineth so far,
Lit by my Savior, eternity's Star;
There shall I praise Him with Eden's bright throng,
Wonderful country, O wonderful song! [Chorus]
