New Song: His Mercy is More

"where sin increased, grace increased all the more" - Romans 5:20

 

We're learning a new song - His Mercy Is More - this Sunday at our 10:15 and 6pm services. Matt Boswell and Matt Papa have written a simple yet poignant song that reminds us that, whoever we are and whatever we've done, God's mercy is strong enough to cover our sin through the blood of His Son Jesus Christ, shed on the cross.

This simple song also helps to maintain a healthy balance in our diet of songs. Alongside our theologically rich, more dense songs and hymns, we need simple songs that remind us of simple, profound truths.

Here's the lyrics, and a link to a YouTube video of a really nice arrangement...

 

 

(Verse 1)
What love could remember no wrongs we have done
Omniscient, all knowing, He counts not their sum
Thrown into a sea without bottom or shore
Our sins they are many, His mercy is more

(Chorus)
Praise the Lord, His mercy is more
Stronger than darkness, new every morn
Our sins they are many, His mercy is more

(Verse 2)
What patience would wait as we constantly roam
What Father, so tender, is calling us home
He welcomes the weakest, the vilest, the poor
Our sins they are many, His mercy is more

(Verse 3)
What riches of kindness he lavished on us
His blood was the payment, His life was the cost
We stood 'neath a debt we could never afford
Our sins they are many, His mercy is more
