From vaults of sheer magnificence
Love’s tenderness bestows
To mankind’s broken testaments
Heaven’s unfolding rose

Mercy does not harden the skies
He melts the brooding deeps
And to man’s shattered paradise
Love’s countless blessing heaps

And even though Mercy has borne
Witness to shame and pride
Still, still He gilds darkness with morn
And flings the night aside

From outer realms to earth’s front doors
Compassion spills its sea
As Heaven’s mercy-grail out-pours
Today to you and me

Its golden streams rend onyx tress
His mercy never fails
In spite of mankind’s brokenness
God’s faithfulness prevails
