Your Mercies Are New

Posted on

“Amazing grace, how sweet the sound

that saved a wretch like me.

I once was lost, but now I’m found,

was blind but now I see.”

That used to be the song I sung.

I thought that I had overcome,

But now I face the chains again

Of sin’s captivity.

I caught His grace when I was lost,

And walked the life it gave,

For sinners are in need of such,

But what about the saved?

The scars from wounds whose pasts He’s healed

Are trophies of his grace.

But when His own fall down and bleed,

To Him is it disgrace?

Since I am one to Him belongs,

My thoughts and fears are with my wrongs.

If I plead His blood again

Do I abuse such grace?

For sinner’s sin is understood,

But what about the saved?

I’ve chosen wrong a thousand times

Since Jesus came to me,

And tearfully come running back

Where His love greets me faithfully.

There are no words to thank or praise

This love too good to be true,

That every day when I fall short,

I’ll find your mercies, Lord, anew.
