Lord Have Mercy (For What We Have Done) – Sunday Songs

Lord Have Mercy (For What We Have Done) is track nine on Matt Papa and Matt Boswell’s album His Mercy Is More.

The lyrics:
Verse 1
For what we have done and left undone
We fall on Your countless mercies
For sins that are known and those unknown
We call on Your name so holy
For envy and pride, for closing our eyes
For scorning our very neighbor
In thought word and deed we’ve failed You our King
How deeply we need a Saviour
Chorus
Lord have mercy Christ have mercy
Lord have mercy on us
Lord have mercy Christ have mercy
Lord have mercy on us
Verse 2
For what You have done Your life of love
You perfectly lived we praise You
Though tempted and tried You fixed Your eyes
You finished the work God gave You
And there on the tree a King among thieves
You bled for a world’s betrayal
You loved to the end our merciful friend
How pure and forever faithful
Chorus
Bridge
For hearts that are cold for seizing control
For scorning our very Maker
In thought word and deed we’ve failed You our King
How deeply we need a Saviour
Chorus
Repeat Chorus

Words and Music: Matt Boswell, Matt Papa, Aaron Keys, and James Tealy

Come As You Are by Michael Card

Come As You Are is the first track on Michael Card’s album To The Kindness Of God.
Apparently this is intended to be Card’s final album release of songs, which marks a great transition.
It seems as if singles are the way of the future, with musicians less dependent on the distribution means that encouraged them to release songs in groups on records.

The King In All His Beauty – Sunday Songs

The King In All His Beauty is one of the songs from Matt Papa and Matt Boswell’s album His Mercy Is More that I haven’t already featured here as it is a fairly recent composition.

The lyrics:
1.
Oh lift your eyes to heaven see
The Holy One eternal
Behold the Lord of majesty
Exalted in His Temple
How symphonies of angels praise
Now strain to sound His glory
Come worship, fall before His grace
The King in His all His beauty
Refrain.
How worthy
How worthy
How worthy
The King in His all His Beauty
2.
The Saviour King who wears a crown
One made of shame and splinters
The sacrifice for ruined man
The substitute for sinners
Thus earth is stained with royal blood
And quakes with love and fury
He breathes His last, and bows His head
The King in all His beauty
Refrain.
How worthy
How worthy
How worthy
The King in His all His Beauty
3.
Now see the Saviour lifted up
The Lamb who reigns in splendour
The hope of every tribe and tongue
His Kingdom is forever
Bring praise and honour to His courts
Bring wisdom, power, and blessing
For endless ages we’ll adore
The King in all His beauty
Refrain.
How worthy
How worthy
How worthy
The King in His all His Beauty
