O GOD OF MERCY, HEAR OUR PLEA

  Lyrics

Verse 1
O God, we’ve seen your faithfulness
You brought us from the wilderness
But now our faith is frail and weak
O God of mercy, hear our plea

Verse 2
When will you comfort our distress
How long until the promised rest
We cry to you from deepest need
O God of mercy, hear our plea

Chorus
Abba Father, our redeemer
In this barren land, be our hope and strength
Until glory we will trust and sing
Abba Father, hear our plea

Verse 3
We join creation’s longing groan
To take your ransomed children home
For then the eyes of all will see
The God of mercy hears our plea

Tag
For then the eyes of all will see
The God of mercy hears our plea

Ending
Abba Father, hear our plea
