Hymn/Song Information

God of mercy and compassion look with




God of mercy and compassion,
look with pity upon me;
Father, let me call the Father,
‘tis thy child returns to thee.

Jesus Lord, I ask for mercy;
let me not implore in vain:
all my sins I now detest them,
never will I sin again.



By my sins I have deservèd
death and endless misery,
hell with all its pain and torments,
and for all eternity.

Jesus Lord, I ask for mercy;
let me not implore in vain:
all my sins I now detest them,
never will I sin again.



By my sins I have abandon’d
right and claim to heaven above,
where the saints rejoice for ever,
in a boundless sea of love.

Jesus Lord, I ask for mercy;
let me not implore in vain:
all my sins I now detest them,
never will I sin again.



See our Saviour, bleeding, dying,
on the cross of Calvary;
to that cross my sins have nail’d him,
yet he bleeds and dies for me.

Jesus Lord, I ask for mercy;
let me not implore in vain:
all my sins I now detest them,
never will I sin again.
