Lovingkindness, but Matt Papa, Matt Boswell, and Matt Redman, newly released through Getty Music.
Kristyn Getty seems present as part of the vocals.
Expect a singable memorable melody and lyrics that make for cogent corporate expression.
The poetry is a bit strained, a brave choice to impose a rhyme structure around the suffix ‘ness’.
The music helps carry over some of the bumps.

The lyrics:
1.
Let praises now awake the dawn
We’ll greet Your mercy with a song
Your people stand and sing for all
Your lovingkindness
You’ve carried us in faithfulness
Upon the paths of righteousness
Our gracious King You’ve crowned us with
Your lovingkindness
Chorus.
How great is Your lovingkindness
O God of goodness
Our joy forever to sing the glad refrain
Of grace that saved us
Of sweet forgiveness
O how great is
Your lovingkindness
2
You lift us with a Father’s hand
You shelter us with Your commands
What heart could fully comprehend
Your mercies endless
You lead us through the shadows deep
Where doubts trace every step, it seems
But as the darkness breaks we’ll see
The morning promise
Chorus.
3
A life laid down to rescue us
With arms outstretched upon the cross
The greatest Gift there ever was
Of lovingkindness
A life laid down to rescue us
With arms outstretched upon the cross
The greatest Gift there ever was
Of lovingkindness
Your lovingkindness
Chorus x2
