Mercy’s Vessel

1
When this poor sinner stands at last
Perfected as a son,
I’ll praise my God for many things
But most what mercy’s done.
While far from God and dead in sin
Rich mercy did abound;
I did not ask or seek for God
But yet my Lord I found.
2
I’m mercy’s vessel, this I know,
For God has chosen me;
The riches of His glory shall
Thus manifested be.
Not him who wills can follow now
This way as yet unknown;
Not him who runs can yet pursue,
But to whom mercy’s shown.
3
My Father’s lovingkindness, ’tis,
That I am not consumed—
For His compassions never fail;
Each morning they are new.
Through His compassions day by day
I give myself to be
Transformed and built with other saints,
Christ’s Body thus to see.

This way as yet unknown;

Not him who runs can yet pursue,

But to whom mercy’s shown.

Praise the Lord that we are saved not by our own efforts, but just the Lord's mercy! Every day we can experience the Lord's mercy for us!
