O gracious God! How merciful
Are all Your ways to me,
Whose sinful, darkened, rebel mind
Was enmity with Thee;
Yet now, subdued by sovereign grace,
My spirit feels Your warm embrace.
How kind are Your ways, O God.

How precious are Your thoughts, O God,
Too numerous to know
They fill and flood my feeble heart,
And captivate my soul;
How great their sum, how high they rise,
Cannot be measured with the skies.
How kind are Your ways, O God.

O God of Heaven, Your majesty
Is high above the earth.
The skies proclaim with endless speech
Your glory, power and worth.
Lord, what is man, this wretched foe,
That You would love and bless us so?
How kind are Your ways, O God.

Preserved in Jesus, when my soul
And feet made haste to hell;
And there should I have justly gone,
But You do all things well;
Your love was great, Your mercy free,
And from the pit You rescued me.
How kind are Your ways, O God.

A trophy of Your graciousness,
This sinner saved by blood:
The streams of love my soul can trace
Up to the Fountain, God;
And in Your holy heart I see
Eternal thoughts of love for me!
How kind are Your ways, O God.
