    Tender Mercies of the Lord

    Thoughtfully

    1. Tender mercies of the Lord

    Come in quiet ways,

    Not by mere coincidence,

    But by heaven’s grace.

    As we choose to follow Him

    With full heart and soul,

    We become His chosen ones

    And tender mercies flow.

    2. Tender mercies of the Lord

    Come in times of need.

    Gifts of faith and confidence

    Fill us as we plead.

    Words of guidance, hope, and peace

    Help us feel God’s love.

    By our faith, His mercies come

    Like manna from above.

    3. Tender mercies of the Lord

    Come as we repent.

    Sweet forgiveness, peace of mind

    Follow, heaven-sent.

    Faithfulness, obedience

    Help us to discern.

    Blessings sweet and personal

    For which our spirits yearn.

    4. Tender mercies of the Lord

    Comfort us and guide.

    In His time and in His way,

    We receive His light.

    As we yield our will to His,

    Blessings freely flow.

    We partake of love divine

    Thru mercies He bestows.
