Have Mercy on Me

15 Mar

Songs like this are few today. Songs that deal directly with sin and the perfect demands of the law of God. And how Christ fulfilled those demands for us.

I am a sinner; You’re blameless, Lord
My sins against You can’t be ignored
They will be punished, I know they must
Your law demands it, for You are just

If You would count
Everything that I’ve done wrong
Who could stand?
But there’s forgiveness with You, God

Have mercy on me, have mercy on me
A broken and a contrite heart
You won’t turn away
Have mercy on me, have mercy on me
Because of Your steadfast love

Father of mercy, You gave Your Son
To make atonement for wrongs I have done
What You required, Jesus fulfilled
I don’t deserve it— I never will
