Put all man’s failures in a heap,© Walterrean Salley
And then they would exceed the skies.
But God’s great mercy far exceeds
The sum of all man’s sinful pride.
For all the heart can think, or do,
Or dream in its deceptive mode—
He has a plan for me and you:
Forgiveness (a divine code).
It is a mystery divine
How God forgives our failures all
And beckons one with love sublime
Tho’ few dare answer His clear call.
Oh lovely deity Divine
I take thy mercy to be mine.
