God of mercy and compassion lyrics
1 God of mercy and compassion,
Look with pity upon me.
Father, let me call Thee 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.
2 By my sins I have deserved
Death and endless misery;
Hell, with all its pains and torments,
And for all eternity. [Refrain]
3 By my sins I have abandoned
Right and claim to Heav’n above,
Where the saints rejoice forever,
In a boundless sea of love. [Refrain]
4 See our Savior, bleeding, dying,
On the cross of Calvary;
To that cross my sins have nailed Him,
Yet He bleeds and dies for me. [Refrain]
