Magnificent Mercy

I vowed to you Lord that I would obey
And promised to do everything you say
As I go through this life day after day 
But then I slipped and fell

You came to me and lifted me up
You dusted me off and offered your cup
You said start again and never give up
Your forgiven all over again

Oh magnificent mercy
Coming from His precious love
Sweep over me like a river
Mercy that’s more than enough

I try day by day to be worthy
But I succumb to my frailties 
Gossip or anger or what my eyes see 
Drop me from pure to my knees

But you never speak condemnation 
You offer me your consolation 
And show me your endless compassion
As you take my hand once again

Oh magnificent mercy
Coming from His precious love
Sweep over me like a river
Mercy that’s more than enough

You always forgive when I stumble
You always forgive my mistakes
You’re always right there
To show me you care 
And you’ll do whatever it takes

Oh magnificent mercy
Coming from His precious love
Sweep over me like a river
Mercy that’s more than enough
