L.M.


1
SEE mercy, mercy from on high,
Descend to rebels doomed to die;
'Tis mercy free, which knows no bound;
How sweet, how pleasant is the sound!
2
Soon as the reign of sin began,
The light of mercy dawned on man,
When God announced the blessèd news,
The woman's Seed thy head shall bruise.
3
Brightly it beamed on men forlorn,
When Christ, the holy Child, was born;
And brighter still in splendour shone
When Jesus, dying, cried, 'Tis done!
4
Complete in power when He arose
And burst the bands of all His foes;
He captive led captivity,
And took for us His seat on high.

R. Sandeman
