Mercy is His Name

No Boundary

I can do anything when I am nothing
I have more power when I am weak
There is no boundary to what God can do through me
If I will just yield myself to His control

Many a time I have wondered out loud
Why I walk like I’m big and proud
I don’t know anything and I can do nothing
When I walk in my strength out of control

Giving my life to the Lord of my life
Is only a matter of what is right
He is the power and He is the strength
That carries me through every day

I do not know in my own self what is true
This world has lost its way to the truth
When I trust Him I know I will win
Because He is the way, the truth and the life.

Lord, give me strength to walk in my weakness
Lord, give me power to stand and be strong
Lord, take my life as a sweet-smelling sacrifice
Lord, I am yours.  Lord, I am yours.
He Wants No Less

He Wants No Less

 He wants no less from us than mercy
 Mercy to each soul that comes along
 Don’t justify your harsh words or your temper
 Give mercy to each one and make them strong
 He wants no less from you than grace
 Grace that reaches everyone you meet
 Don’t justify your gossip and backbiting
 Just speak to everyone with words of peace
 He wants no less from you than forgiveness
 Forgiveness that will pardon every hurt
 Don’t justify your grudges and complaining
 Forgive each one who troubles your hard heart
 He wants no less from you than the truth
 Truth that speaks to everything in life
 Don’t justify your white lies and your fables
 Just speak with words of truth and you’ll survive
 He wants no less from you than great love
 Love that surpasses all who see
 Don’t justify your anger and repulsion
 Let love guide every word that you will speak
 These things and more we should do each day
 For Jesus came to show us the way
 These are the things He taught us to do
 Not go against them every day
 So guard your heart and close your mouth
 Let goodness flow from you
 Let your light shine for all to see
 In all you say and do.
