Hymn/Song Information

As debtors to mercy alone Of heavenly




A debtor to mercy alone--
Of covenant mercy I sing;
Nor fear, with thy righteousness on,
My person and off'ring to bring.


The terrors of law and of God
With me can have nothing to do;
My Saviour's obedience and blood
Hide all my transgressions from view.


The work which his goodness began,
The arm of his strength will complete;
His promise is Yea and Amen,
And never was forfeited yet;


Things future, nor things that are now,
Not all things below nor above,
Can make Him His purpose forego,
Or sever my soul from His love.


My name from the palm of his hands
Eternity will not erase;
Impressed on his heart it remains,
In marks of indellible grace.


Yes, I to the end shall endure,
As sure as the earnest is giv'n--
More happy, but not more secure,
The glorified sprits in heav'n.


---Alternative verses---


As debtors to mercy alone,
Of heavenly mercy we sing;
Nor fear to draw near to the throne,
Our praise and our worship to bring:
The wrath of a sin-hating God


With us can have nothing to do;
The Saviour's obedience and blood
Hide all our transgressions from view.


Our names from
the palms of His hands
Eternity will not erase:
Impressed on His heart they remain
In marks of indelible grace:


And we to the end shall endure,
As sure as the earnest is given;
More happy, but not more secure,
The spirits departed to heaven.
