Thy mercy my God is the theme of my song

the joy of my heart and the boast of my tongue

thy free grace alone from the first to the last

hath won my affection and bound my soul fast

Without they sweet mercy I could not live here

sin would reduce me to utter despare

but through thy free goodness my spirits revived

and he that first made me so keeps me alive

Thy mercy is more than a match for my heart

which wonders to feel it's heartless depart

dissolved by thy goodness I fall to the ground

and weep for the praise of the mercy I've found

Great father of mercies,thy goodness I own

and the covenant love of thy crucified son

all praise to the spirit whose whisper divine

seals mercy and pardon and righteousness mine
