1. If you, Lord, set your plumb-line -
Lord, have mercy -
We know well the truth you'll find -
Christ have mercy!
We're lost in our transgressions,
God of mercy,
Unless you can forget them
in your mercy.

 

2.  If you take your judgement seat -
Lord have mercy -
there is hope for us who seek
your sweet mercy.
Steadfast love and faithfulness,
God of mercy,
Thus you make a way for us
in your mercy.

 

3.  O Lord our only hope lies
in your mercy
Hear now our last-ditch heart cries:
"Christ have mercy!"
Rescue us, deliver us,
Lord have mercy!
May we share your righteousness,
God of mercy.

 

4.  Rejoice in hope eternal:
God is mercy!
As He has loved we too will,
by His mercy,
all who like us have fallen,
needing mercy;
Let's reach out, gently call them
to God's mercy.
