Hymn/Song Information

I SAVE ME FOR THY MERCIES' SAKE




Mercy alone can meet my case;
For mercy, Lord, I cry;
Jesus! Redeemer! show thy face
In mercy, or I die.


Save me, for none beside can save;
At thy command I tread,
With failing step, life’s stormy wave;
The wave goes o’er my head.


I perish, and my doom were just;
but wilt thou leave me? No:
I hold thee fast, my hope, my trust,
I will not let thee go.


Still sure to me thy promise stands,
And ever must abide;
Behold it written on thy hands,
And graven in thy side.


To this, this only, will I cleave,
Thy words is all my plea;
Thy words is truth, and I believe:
have mercy, Lord, on me.
