O God Of Mercy Make Me Whole

O God of mercy make me whole,
    That I by faith may do
The very works that lead my soul
    To think and act anew.
Assist me Lord to learn Your will.
    Prepare my heart to hear
The hallowed words You would instill
    Upon my willing ear.

Within my heart the tempter trod.
    Rebellion raged and stormed,
But on the fiery forge of God
    My life became transformed.
By faith I trusted in the grace
    That held my soul handfast.
My heart has been God's dwelling place
    Since Satan was outcast.

Within this vast eternity
    I shall, from hence, abide.
My sin and old identity
    I shun and lay aside.
Your hand, 0 Lord, I gladly grip,
    And follow where You lead,
For Your eternal fellowship
    Has filled my every need.
