Sea of Mercy

Printed Music 

When first I drew an infant’s breath,
I sailed a sea of mercy.
This life, this world, these gifts, my Lord,
Were flowing all from You.
When bound by sin and blindness,
So sure that I was free,
I saw Your face and heard Your voice
And found Your love for me.
My God, what love for me!

I turned, and You forgave my past.
Lord, what a sea of mercy!
Now every day in You, my God,
I’m more than I can be.
I love You, and I follow.
That’s all that I can do.
Your mercy is a mighty sea
That carries me to You.
I’m coming, Lord, to You!


Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed,
for his compassions never fail.
They are new every morning;
great is your faithfulness.
(Lamentations 3:22-23, NIV)

When I fail to trust God, I fail.
And I have failed so often.

Sometimes it’s been a troublesome, recurrent sin.
Sometimes pride,
selfishness, or

But in all these years, I have never used up His mercies.
We draw on them over and over, and
they are never diminished.
They are “new every morning.”

I feel ashamed and presumptuous to come to Him again for forgiveness.
But He asks me to come, and
I come in obedience.

Lord, in obedience,
I trust Your mercy once again.
