Mercy Magnified

"O praise the LORD, all ye nations: praise Him, all ye people.  For His merciful kindness is great toward us: and the truth of the LORD endureth forever" (Psalm 117:1,2).  "He that covereth his sins shall not prosper: but whoso confesseth and forsaketh them shall have mercy" (Proverbs 28:13).  "They shall cry unto the LORD… and He shall send them a Savior… and He shall deliver them… and shall heal them" (Isaiah 19:20,22).  "The name of the Lord Jesus was magnified.  And many that believed came, and confessed, and showed their deeds" (Acts 19:17,18).

How wondrous is the invitation
To be partakers of God's grace
With truth abounding in salvation,
Extended to the human race. 

It is not wise to cover sins,
For surely God can see them all.
The mercy of the Lord begins
When sinners heed the Savior's call. 

The Lord has sent to us a Savior
Who bids us find in Him our rest   
Beneath His healing wings of favor,
With sins forsaken and confessed. 

O Lord, we glorify Your name
For mercy that is magnified,
As ransomed sinners gladly claim
The full redemption You provide!
