In Your Mercy, Lord

In Your mercy, Lord, You called me,
Taught my sinful heart and mind,
Else this world had still enthralled me,
And to glory kept me blind.

Lord, I did not freely choose You
Till by grace You set me free;
For my heart would still refuse You
Had Your love not chosen me.

Now my heart sets none above You,
For Your grace alone I thirst,
Knowing well, that if I love You,
You, O Lord, have loved me first.

hymn can be sung to the tune for
Come, Thou Long-Expected Jesus

This past week I read this hymn in the Magnificat prayer book.  I don't know who wrote it but the words deeply touched my heart. ♥
