Lord, have mercy

Jesus I've forgotten, the words that You have spoken
Promises that burned within my heart, have now grown dim
With a doubting heart I follow, the paths of earthly wisdom
Forgive me for my unbelief, renew the fire again
Lord have mercy, Christ have mercy, Lord have mercy on me
Lord have mercy, Christ have mercy, Lord have mercy on me
I have built an altar, where I worship things of man
I have taken journeys, that have drawn me far from You
Now I am returning, to Your mercies ever flowing
Pardon my transgressions, help me love You again

I have longed to know You, and all Your tender mercies
Like a river of forgiveness, ever flowing without end
I bow my heart before You, in the goodness of Your presence
Your grace forever shining, like a beacon in the night
