GREATNESS OF DIVINE MERCY




Great God, how bright thy mercies shines,
How wonderful are its displays!
It forms the most unbounded plans,
Exerts itself a thousand ways:
‘Tis now dispensed both rich and free,
To wretched creatures such as me.


‘Tis the exhaustless source from whence
Perpetual streams of blessing flow;
Without it we were all undone,
And with it we can all forego:
This world with all its boasted store,
Compared with this is mean and poor.


It pardons crimes of deepest dye,
And makes our sinful nature clean,
Removes our guilt, that heavy load,
Spreads light and life and joy within:
Oh may I feel its quickening power,
And praises and wonder and adore.
