By faith I see my Saviour dy-ing 

On the tree, on the tree;

To eve-ry na-tion He is cry-ing,

Look to me, look to me;

He bids the guilty now draw near,

Believe, repent, dismiss their fear;

Hark! hark! what precious words I hear!

Mercy's free, mercy's free.

Did Christ, when I was sin pursuing,

Pity me, pity me?

And did he snatch my soul from ruin,

Can it be, can it be?

O yes, he did salvation bring,

He is my Prophet, Priest, and King.

And now my happy soul can sing,

Mercy's free, mercy's free.

Jesus my weary soul refreshes-

Mercy's free, mercy's free-

And every moment Christ is precious,

Unto me, unto me;

None can describe the bliss I prove,

While though this wilderness I rove;

All may enjoy the Saviour's love-

Mercy's free, mercy's free.

This precious truth, ye sinners hear it-

Mercy's free, mercy's free-

Ye ministers of God declare it-

Mercy's free, mercy's free:

Visit the heathen's dark abode,

Proclaim to all the love of God,

And spread the glorious news abroad-

Mercy's free, mercy's free.

Long as I live, I'll still be crying,

Mercy's free, mercy's free;

And this shall be my theme when dying,

Mercy's free, mercy's free;

And when the vale of death I've passed,

When lodged above the stormy blast

I'll sing while endless ages last,

Mercy's free, mercy's free.
