249 (8.8.8.8.D) Augustus Toplady

A debtor to mercy alone —

Of covenant mercy I sing;

Nor fear, with Thy righteousness on,

My person and off'ring to bring.

The terrors of law and of God

With me can have nothing to do;

My Saviour's obedience and blood

Hide all my transgressions from view.

The work which His goodness began,

The arm of His strength will complete;

His promise is Yea and Amen,

And never was forfeited yet;

Things future, nor things that are now,

Not all things below nor above,

Can make Him His purpose forego,

Or sever my soul from His love.

My name from the palm of His hands

Eternity will not erase;

Impressed on His heart it remains,

In marks of indelible grace.

Yes, I to the end shall endure,

As sure as the earnest is giv'n —

More happy, but not more secure,

The glorified spirits in heav'n.
