Tender Mercy

There is a home that wanderers seek
There is a strength that lifts the weak
There is hope for those that know despair
There is a cup that satisfies
There is a Friend who dries my eyes
There is peace for those with heavy hearts

Tender mercy
The tender mercy of our God
From lips of sinners
He has heard the faintest cry
Tender mercy
The tender mercy of our God
He has relented and His grace is my delight

I have resolved to know Him more
He whom the hosts of heaven adore
Mighty King, whose reign will never end
Yet as I gaze at the Holy One
He beckons me to closer come
Bares the scars that show to me my worth
