“Tender Mercies of the Lord,” New Era, Apr. 2007, 13Tender Mercies of the LordThoughtfully 1. Tender mercies of the LordCome in quiet ways,Not by mere coincidence,But by heaven’s grace.As we choose to follow HimWith full heart and soul,We become His chosen onesAnd tender mercies flow.2. Tender mercies of the LordCome in times of need.Gifts of faith and confidenceFill us as we plead.Words of guidance, hope, and peaceHelp us feel God’s love.By our faith, His mercies comeLike manna from above.3. Tender mercies of the LordCome as we repent.Sweet forgiveness, peace of mindFollow, heaven-sent.Faithfulness, obedienceHelp us to discern.Blessings sweet and personalFor which our spirits yearn.4. Tender mercies of the LordComfort us and guide.In His time and in His way,We receive His light.As we yield our will to His,Blessings freely flow.We partake of love divineThru mercies He bestows.Copyright © 2006 by Janice Kapp Perry.
