While walking across a parking lot with a Pastor friend, we were discussing how while His mercy is constant, it seems, depending on our need, to come over us in waves…


Lyrics

Waves of Mercy

I paint my doorpost fresh with blood and feast upon God's Lamb
Wrap myself in Your death and with You, rise again…
In Your strength alone I must bear this cross or I will never wear the crown;
Follow Your footsteps through the mire to reach that Holy Ground
I recognize everything I have is Yours, I gladly give it up…
Oh Lord, you are my portion, my inheritance, my cup…
Your blood cries “it is finished”, and in every drop I see
Waves of mercy washing over me…

Waves of mercy washing over me
Rivers of forgiveness cleanse my heart and set me free
The ocean of love, flowing, from the very heart of Thee
Sends waves of mercy washing over me
Waves of mercy washing over me…

I come to Your cross my Christ, broken, on my knees
Knowing at the judgment I deserved You took my place…
Only Son of God Most High willingly You lived to die
With Your arms open wide in eternal embrace
I recognize everything I have is Yours, I gladly give it up…
Oh Lord, you are my portion, my inheritance, my cup…
Your blood cries “it is finished” and in every drop I see
Waves of mercy washing over me…

Waves of mercy washing over me
Rivers of forgiveness cleanse my heart and set me free
The ocean of love, flowing from the very heart of Thee
Sends waves of mercy washing over me
Waves of mercy washing over me
Rivers of forgiveness cleanse my heart and set me free
The ocean of love, flowing, from the very heart of Thee
Sends waves of mercy washing over me
Waves of mercy washing over me…
