Marvelous Mercy

"Show Thy marvelous lovingkindness, O Thou that savest by Thy right hand them which put their trust in Thee… Hide me under the shadow of Thy wings" (Psalm 17:7,8).  "Whoso findeth Me… shall obtain favor of the LORD" (Proverbs 8:35).  "I will give them an heart to know Me… and they shall be My people" (Jeremiah 24:7).  "The Father which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light… delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of His dear Son" (Colossians 1:12,13). 

The love of God is marvelous,
Much more that we can understand!
Beneath His wings He shelters us
And saves us with His nail-scarred hand. 

The mercy that we need to find
Abounds in Jesus Christ our Savior. 
There is no other love so kind,
Extending heaven's blood-bought favor! 

God gives to us a heart to know
And love our Savior Jesus Christ,
Who gave Himself to thus bestow
His grace when He was sacrificed. 

O Lord, how marvelous You are,
Displaying mercy as You do
To draw us near who once were far,
That we may ever dwell with You.
