Friday Slowdown - Thy Mercy, My God


Thy Mercy, My God
1. Thy mercy, my God, is the theme of my song,
The joy of my heart. and the boast of my tongue;
Thy free grace alone, from the first to the last,
Hath won my affections, and bound my soul fast.
2. Without Thy sweet mercy I could not live here;
Sin would reduce me to utter despair;
But, through Thy free goodness, my spirits revive,
And He that first made me still keeps me alive.
3. Thy mercy is more than a match for my heart,
Which wonders to feel its own hardness depart;
Dissolved by Thy goodness, I fall to the ground,
And weep to the praise of the mercy I’ve found.
4. Great Father of mercies, Thy goodness I own,
And the covenant love of Thy crucified Son;
All praise to the Spirit, Whose whisper divine
Seals mercy, and pardon, and righteousness mine.
All praise to the Spirit, Whose whisper divine
Seals mercy, and pardon, and righteousness mine.

I just caught my husband as he was heading out the door for work and we shared this song together to start the day. It was a great blessing to both of us. Jesus says he is "gentle and humble in heart" and in him we will find rest for our souls, from Matthew 11.

Hi there Snoodles! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year because I think it's been that long since we caught up. I saw that you commented on my blog and I've been trying to get back here for the longest. Hope all is well in your world and that your holidays were all you wanted them to be. Donna
