Mercy Finds Me

When the world closes in around me
And sin’s lying at the door
It is then that I call on His mercy
To restore
Make me whole

When I’ve wandered away from His presence
And I can’t find my way back home
It is then that His mercy finds me
Wraps His arms
Around my form

CHORUS
Oh what tender grace He shows me
Oh what mercy He bestows
On what love my Savior has for me
All my life I can rest in Him

When my world closes in around me
And the struggle is hard to bear
It is then that I cry out for mercy
Endlessly
He repairs

CHORUS

BRIDGE
Mercy unending
Grace forevermore
That’s what Jesus lavishes on me
For eternity

CHORUS

Mercy is All I Need

Lord how I need to cry out to you
In the middle of my distress
I cannot find rest
In the midst of this mess
Your mercy all that I need

Lord I have walked away from you
I cannot find peace for my soul
I’m desperate for you
Don’t know what I should do
Your mercy is all I need

Mercy is all I need
Mercy is all I need
My soul’s in your hands
Only you understand
The depth of the mercy I need

Then I hear your sweet voice calling out to me
Saying son I’ve forgiven your sins
Don’t give them a thought
Just turn and walk
Follow the path where I lead

I do not hold them against you
I do not tell them again
I do not see your sins anymore
To me you are sin free and clean

Mercy is all I need
Mercy is all I need
My soul’s in your hands
Only you understand
The depth of the mercy I need

Mercy Never Gives Up

I’m not sure why you put up with me
I am not always following you
I turn to the left
Or I turn to the right
I’m ashamed of the things that I do

Yet in the midst of my wandering
Your Spirit still seems to work
He straightens my steps
Puts me back on the path
So I’m running right back to you

Your mercy never gives up on me
Never rests on my behalf
I know I can trust
In your wonderful love
To draw me closer to you

Forgive me Lord my transgression
Help me move past all of my sin
My desire is for you
For your love is true
And your mercy never gives up

He Could Have

He could have let me die
Swallowed by my sin
He could have left me trapped
By the demons deep within
He could have turned his back
On all my misery
He could have but He didn’t
By His grace He set me free

He could have kept his joy
And left me in despair
He could have kept his peace
And left my life impaired
He could have kept his hope
And left me with no plan
He could have but he didn’t
By His grace he took my hand

What great mercy
What great love
That sent my Savior weeping
To die upon a cross
What great mercy
What great love
He thought my life worth saving
His grace more than enough

He could have curbed my faith
So doubt would fill my mind
He could have withheld goodness
So that I would not be kind
He could have left me reeling
In sickness and disease
He could have but He didn’t
Instead he blesses me

What great mercy
What great love
That sent my Savior weeping
To die upon a cross
What great mercy
What great love
He thought my life worth saving
His grace more than enough

One day he will come back to welcome me home
He could have stayed in heaven and be worshipped on His throne
He chose to come and take for me the torture of the cross
He could have let me die in sin but instead He paid the cost

What great mercy
What great love
That sent my Savior weeping
To die upon a cross
What great mercy
What great love
He thought my life worth saving
His grace more than enough

 

Out Of The Mire

In my distress

I cried to the Lord

He lifted me out of the mire

Carried me up 

To a lofty place

And filled all my heart’s desire

Now I can sing

Of His wonderful grace

His mercy is covering me

I’ll lift up His name

His wonderful name

For He has supplied all my needs

For all of my sorrows 

He gave me His joy

For all of my troubles

He gave me His peace 

For all of my worry

He gave me His hope

On top of it all was His love

Oh what a Savior

Is Jesus my Lord

What a wonderful Savior to me

Whenever I’m down

He lifts me up

Then walks down the road with me

The joy of the Lord is my strength 

His peace oasses all I know

The hope that He gives is enduring 

Oh how He loves me so

For all of my sorrows 

He gave me His joy

For all of my troubles

He gave me His peace 

For all of my worry

He gave me His hope

On top of it all was His love

His Wonderful Grace

What is it that keeps me coming back to God
What is it that makes me crave His vast and wonders love
What is it that assures me that He is enough
It’s his grace
His wonderful grace

What is it that removes all of my doubts and fears
What is it that dries my eyes and wipes away my tears
What is it that makes my worries all disappear
It’s his grace
His wonderful grace

I thank Him for the grace that He has shown to me
I thank Him for the grace that makes me what I need to be
I thank Him for the grace that caused my heart to see
His great grace
His wonderful Grace

I will sing His Praises my voice will raise up high
I will lift my hands and worship reaching for the sky
The world will know this grace as my words do testify
That He alone is Worthy
Worthy to be praised
He alone is Worthy
I’ll celebrate his grace
He alone is Worthy
One day soon I’ll see his face
All of this from His wonderful grace

Through and Through

I can’t explain His mercy
I can’t explain His grace
I can’t explain the love He has for me
For when I was a sinner
Didn’t even know He cared
He left His throne to come and rescue me

I was lost and lonely
Drowning in despair
My life was heading down a wicked road
A still small voice then spoke
It called to me that day
I knew that there was nowhere else to go

What a wondrous Savior
What a faithful friend
That He would love me just the way I am
I knelt before the altar
I gave my life to Him
That day the road I travelled led to Him

Today I try to serve Him
With all my heart and soul
But often I will stumble and will fall
He treats me with compassion
He shows His grace to me

I understand He loves me
But I cannot explain
Why He would forgive the things I do
I’ll rest here in His mercy
I’ll rest here in His grace
Because I know He loves me through and through
