When all within was self and sin,
A dark and shoreless sea,
When death was all my life deserved,
Your mercy flowed to me.
When death was all my life deserved,
Your mercy flowed to me.

My faith and love were small and weak,
Far less than they should be,
But still Your patience never failed—
Your mercy flowed to me.
But still Your patience never failed—
Your mercy flowed to me.

Surrounded now by all this need,
This lost humanity,
Make me a source of gentle grace—
Let mercy flow through me!
Make me a source of gentle grace—
Let mercy flow through me!

Your patience and forgiveness, Lord,
Lived out for all to see,
Your love that shone through hate and wrong—
Lord, let it shine through me!
Your love that shone through hate and wrong—
Lord, let it shine through me!
