A debtor to mercy alone,
Of covenant mercy I sing.
I come with Your righteousness on,
My humble off’ring to bring.
The judgments of Your holy law
With me can have nothing to do.
My Savior’s obedience and blood
Hide all my transgressions from view.

The work which Your goodness began,
The arm of Your strength will complete.
Your promise is yes and amen,
And never was forfeited yet.
The future or things that are now,
No power below or above
Can make You Your purpose forego,
Or sever my soul from Your love.

My name from the palms of Your hands
Eternity will not erase.
Impressed on Your heart it remains
In marks of indelible grace.
Yes, I to the end will endure,
Until I bow down at Your throne,
Forever and always secure,
A debtor to mercy alone.
