God's love and mercy - song search

Please help... I have been trying to find the verses to this song.
I believe the chorus goes like this...

Mercy, mercy, God's love and mercy.
That extends both to you, you and me.
Oh, If we had gotten justice, we would surely be lost.
But we found mercy when we knelt at the cross.

Thanks so much!!

VERSE 1:
How many times have I bowed before God
To ask His forgiveness for some wrong that I have done?
And how many times have I hear my Lord say
Child, as long as I have mercy, you're forgiven today?


VERSE 2:
Though I'm undeserving my sins are gone, without a trace
And someday up in Heaven I will look on Jesus' face
All through eternal ages, my song shall ever be
Oh Hallelujah, Oh Thank You Jesus for Your mercy to me!


CHORUS:
Mercy, mercy, God's love and mercy
Has saved both you, you and me
Oh, if we had gotten justice we would surely be lost
But we found mercy when we knelt at the cross.

Can anyone tell me how the verses go for this song? I know the chorus - I just can't remember the verses. It would be helpful if someone knew the chords or new someone who sings it.

Thanks so much!!

Verse 1

How many times have I bowed before God
To ask him forgiveness for some wrong I had done
How many times have I heard the Lord say
Child as long as I have mercy your forgiven today

Chorus
Mercy, Mercy, God's love and mercy
Was paid, paid for you, you and me
Oh if we had gotten justice we'd surely be lost
But we found mercy when we knelt at the cross

Verse 2
I was a sinner lost and alone
When God in his mercy looked down from heaven's throne
There at that old altar I bowed so depressed
But God gave me mercy when my sins I confessed.

There is a third verse but I can't remember it but I always heard the Looper Trio sing it when I was a child. I never heard the second verse the other person on here listed. Hope this helps!

Seems like we all know the same first verse...

Verse 2
I was a sinner just struggling along
When God's great hand of mercy reached down from heaven's throne
There at the altar where I bowed so depraved
God gave me mercy when my sins He forgave

I heard the Singing Cookes do this song in the Key of "G"

G C G
How many times have you bowed before God,

To ask His forgiveness for some wrong you have done?
C G
How many times have you heard your Lord say,
D G
Child, as long as I have mercy, you're forgiven today.

G C G
Mercy, Mercy, God's loving mercy,
D D7
Has saved both you, you and me, Oh
G C G
If we had gotten justice, we'd surely be lost.
D G
We found mercy when we knelt at the cross.

G C G
I was a sinner, just struggling along,

When God's great hand of mercy reached down from heaven's throne.
C G
There at an old altar, I knelt so depressed,
D G
And God gave me mercy, when my sins I confessed.
