Lyrics

We are bought with a price
By the Lamb that was slain;
He has conquered the grave—
He liveth again!
At the foot of the cross
He will answer our call:
Blessèd be the Lord!
There is mercy for all!

Refrain

Mercy for all! Mercy for all!
Blessèd be the Lord!
There is mercy for all!
Mercy for all! Mercy for all!
Blessèd be the Lord!
There is mercy for all!

We may drink if we will
Of the fountain so free
That is flowing today
For you and for me;
With our burden of sin
At its brink we may fall:
Blessèd be the Lord!
There is mercy for all!

Refrain

O the riches of grace
That in Jesus abound!
With the fullness of joy
His people are crowned.
At the door of His love
He will answer our call:
Blessèd be the Lord!
There is mercy for all!

Refrain

If we walk in the path
That our Master has trod—
If we die unto sin,
But live unto God,
When we pass the dark vale
He will answer our call:
Blessèd be the Lord!
There is mercy for all!

Refrain
