A Debtor to Mercy Alone

A debtor to mercy alone
Of covenant mercy I sing
Nor fear, with Thy righteousness on
My person and offering to bring

The terrors of law and of God
With me can have nothing to do
My Savior’s obedience and blood
Hide all my transgressions from view

The 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
Not all things below nor above
Can make Him His purpose forego
Or sever my soul from His love

My name from the palms of His hands
Eternity will not 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
