A Taste of Your Mercy

 You were mercy to me when I wandered
 Down the road of sin and despair
 I struggled just to survive a life
 That was desperately needing a prayer
  
 You were mercy to me when I looked up
 From the pit I was drowning in
 My heart barely knew how to cry out
 Yet you heard from the depth of my sin
  
 Then you saved me
 Reached out and held me
 Wrapped your arms around this soul of mine
 It was then you gave me
 A taste of your mercy
 I will forever praise your name
  
 You were mercy to me when I looked back
 And I longed for the ways of my past
 You showed me your way was much brighter
 You showed me your mercy will last
  
 Your mercy took my guilt. Your mercy took my shame.
 Your mercy took my scars. Your mercy took my pain.
 Your mercy took my sin and washed it all away
 Now your mercy gives me life eternally
  
 You saved me
 Reached out and held me
 Wrapped your arms around this soul of mine
 It was then you gave me
 A taste of your mercy
 I will forever praise your name
 I will forever praise your name
 The name of Jesus 

Today

 God of mercy.  God of grace
 Come and fill us in this place
 May we feel your warm embrace
 Today
  
 God of wisdom.  God of power
 Come and touch our hearts this hour
 May your love come overpower
 Today
  
 Fill me, Lord.  Fill me with your righteousness
 Fill me, Lord.  Fill me with your holiness
 Fill me, Lord.  How I know that I am blessed
 You have given all for me
 I will fall down on my knees
 Lift my hands and give you praise
 Today.

Your Mercy

 I seek your mercy, Lord
 All that is within me needs your mercy, Lord
 I seek your mercy, Lord
 A heart that wanders from you longs for mercy, Lord
 Let mercy bring new life to me
  
 You move the mountains
 You calm the sea
 Sit on the throne in majesty
 Why do you think of me?
 Why do you care for me?
 Why did you die for me?
 Out of mercy, Your mercy.
  
 Come fill my soul with peace.
 Come now and rescue me
 Come bring new life to me
 By your mercy, your mercy

Mercy Comes Softly

 Mercy comes softly 
 like a gentle rain in spring 
 slowly shaping into our life 
 To replenish us 
 restore us 
 renew us 
 revive us
  
 Mercy comes softly 
 like a quiet breeze in the fall
 bringing cool sensations of 
 peace in my heart 
 my soul 
 my mind 
 my spirit
  
 Mercy comes softly
 like a bubbling steam
 flowing down the mountainside into a larger river 
 filling it with
 fresh life 
 fresh nutrition 
 fresh energy
 fresh strength
  
 Mercy comes softly
 like a fluffy snow on a windless day
 covering the earth all around us
 cleaning all it falls upon
 making it look fresh
 unblemished
 new
 beautiful
  
 Mercy some softly into our lives
 Every minute of every day
 Never leaving us helpless and alone
 Guiding us
 Shaping us
 Protecting us
 Providing for us
  
 Don’t miss it
 Treasure it
 Recognize it when it comes
 Give thanks to God
 Lift up His name
 He will lift you up and out
 Of any trial
 Any test
 Any temptation
 Because in the blink of an eye
 When you list expect it
 But most need it
 His mercy will come
 Softly 

Grace Abounds

I was bound and oppressed, tormented and tested 
 By this world that I’m living in
 I saw no way out
 My life filled with doubt
 How could I ever be free again?
 I saw obstacles everywhere I turned
 From the past mistakes where I’d been burned
 Then a voice whispered in my ear
 My child, be still I am here

 My grace will abound in your life
 My mercy will pull you aside
 Out of this bondage
 Out of your past
 Into a blessing that will surely last
 Do not despair just lift your eyes to the skies
 My grace will abound in your life

 When I heard Him speak these words to me
 Tears filled my eyes as I realized
 This was a promise
 This freedom was coming
 A freedom to transform my life
 I saw blessings everywhere I turned
 All the years of obedience had earned
 Then I lifted my voice to the skies
 Dear Lord, your grave has arrived

 Your grace will abound in my life
 Your mercy has pulled me aside
 Out of my bondage
 Out of my past
 Into a blessing that will surely last
 I will give praise to Jesus above
 Who has rescued me by His love

 His grace will bring freedom. 
 His grace will bring faith
 His grace will bring healing
 His grace will bring erase
 All the chains that have held me down
 Will fall to the ground
 As His grace abounds

 His grace will abound in my life
 His mercy will pull me aside
 Out of this bondage
 Out of your past
 Into a blessing that will surely last
 I will not despair.  I will lift up my eyes to the skies
 His grace will abound in my life
 I will lift up my eyes to the skies
 His grace will abound in my life
