Thy Mercy + Free Hymn Lyrics Printable

Hymns were a big part of the "church music" that I learned in my piano lessons during middle school. Though my church sang the 90s classics like "Above All" and "Shout to the Lord" instead of traditional hymns, I learned to play the few hymns I knew by what was written in the hymnal and by improvising beyond the simple chords. My grandmother, who helped pay for my lessons, always requested hymns when I went over her house, so I learned to play her favorites.

Here I am at 24, still loving hymns. That's why I decided to share my love for hymns here with you in the form of a printable. Recently, I've been worshipping to the hymn "Thy Mercy."

Have you listened to the Caedmon's Call version of "Thy Mercy"? It's beautiful, and here are the first two verses:

Thy mercy, my God, is the theme of my song,
The joy of my heart and the boast of my tongue;
Thy free grace alone, from the first to the last,
Hath won my affections and bound my soul fast.
Without thy free mercy I could not live here
Sin soon would reduce me to utter despair;
But, through thy free goodness, my spirits revive,
And he that first made me, still keeps me alive.
