Hymn/Song Information

God of mercy God of love Hear our sad repentant




God of mercy, God of love,
Hear our sad repentant song;
Sorrow dwells on every face,
Penitence on every tongue.


Deep regret for follies past,
Talents wasted, time misspent;
Hearts debased by worldly cares,
Thankless for the blessings lent;


Foolish fears, and fond desires,
Vain regrets for things as vain;
Lips too seldom taught to praise,
oft to murmur and complain:


These, and every secret fault,
Filled with grief and shame, we own;
Humbled at thy feet we lie,
Seeking pardon from thy throne.


God of mercy, God of grace,
Hear our sad repentant songs;
O restore thy suppliant race,
Thou to whom all praise belongs.


---Alternative verses---


God of mercy, God of love,
Hear our sad repentant songs;
Listen to Thy suppliant ones,
Thou, to whom all grace belongs.
