A Debtor to Mercy Alone

A Debtor to Mercy Alone
©1998 Kevin Twit Music. Words: Augustus Toplady. Music: Kevin Twit.

1. A debtor to mercy alone,
Of covenant mercy I sing;
Nor fear, with Thy righteousness on,
My person and offering to bring.
The terrors of law and of God
With me can have nothing to do;
My Savior’s obedience and blood
Hide all my transgressions from view

2. The work which His goodness began,
The arm of His strength will complete;
His promise is yea and amen,
And never was forfeited yet.
Things future, nor things that are now,
Not all things below nor above
Can make Him His purpose forego,
Or sever my soul from His love.

3. My name from the palms of His hands
Eternity will not erase;
Impressed on His heart it remains
In marks of indelible grace.
Yes, I to the end shall endure,
As sure as the earnest is given
More happy, but not more secure,
The glorified spirits in heaven.

I can't remember what song you're talking about, but I'm sure you're talking about Trudy Poirier, our worship coordinator at church. Her website is www.PearTreeMusic.com. (Brian Mattson is a member of her band when he's in the US)

Also, if you go to my church's homepage, www.rmccmontana.org, you can download two of her songs from the right sidebar in the "Media" section.
