1. tA debtor to mercy alone,
Of covenant mercy I sing;
Nor fear, with God's righteousness on,
My person and off'ring to bring.
The terrors of law and of God
With me can have nothing to do;
My Saviour's obedience and blood
Hide all my transgressions from view.
2. tThe work which His goodness began
The arm of His strength will complete;
His promise is Yea and Amen,
And never was forfeited yet.
Things future, nor things that are now,
Nor all things below or above,
Can make him His purpose forgo,
Or sever my soul from his love.
3. tMy name from the palms of His hands
Eternity will nor erase;
Impressed on His heart it remains,
In marks of indelible grace.
Yes, I to the end shall endure,
As sure as the earnest is given;
More happy, but not more secure,
The glorified spirits in heaven.
