'Mercy' – great free song from Matt Redman

One of my favourite songs to sing in church that I’ve come across this year is Mercy, written by Matt Redman and Jonas Myrin.

It’s a song all about God’s mercy, displayed at the cross of Christ, “where mercy paid for me … where the wrath I deserved it is gone”. As Matt says, Jesus’ death is “the centre-piece of the salvation story, but also the most amazing expression of the heart of God.”

The second verse means it also works well preparing for celebrating the Lord’s supper.

I particularly love the refrain “May I never lose the wonder, the wonder of your mercy”. Simple words, but a natural and fitting prayer of response to having reflected upon the cross of Christ.

And at the moment, Matt and Worship Together are giving away a free download of the song and music here. Check it out.
