His Mercy Is More Lyrics – Songwriters With God In Their Heart

His Mercy Is More Lyrics

Verse 1

What love could remember, no wrongs we have done

Omniscient, all-knowing, He counts not their sum

Thrown into a sea without bottom or shore

Our sins they are many, His mercy is more

Verse 2

What patience would wait as we constantly roam

What Father so tender is calling us home

He welcomes the weakest, the vilest, the poor

Our sins they are many, His mercy is more

Verse 3

What riches of kindness He lavished on us

His blood was the payment His life was the cost

We stood ‘neath a debt we could never afford

Our sins they are many, His mercy is more

 

Chorus

Praise the Lord

His mercy is more

Stronger than darkness

New every morn’

Our sins they are many, His mercy is more

His Mercy Is More Meaning

The song His Mercy Is More was inspired by the songwriters Matt Boswell and Matt Papa after hearing a John Newton sermon.

A quote found on Matt’s website indicates a specific statement from John Newton himself.

Are not you amazed sometimes that you should have so much as a hope, that, poor and needy as you are, the Lord thinketh of you? But let not all you feel discourage you. For if our Physician is almighty, our disease cannot be desperate and if He casts none out that come to Him, why should you fear?

Our sins are many, but His mercies are more: our sins are great, but His righteousness is greater: we are weak, but He is power. Most of our complaints are owing to unbelief, and the remainder of a legal spirit. And these evils are not removed in a day.

John Newton

How Does Music Affect You Spiritually?

The music we listen to and sing shifts our attitude, mindset, and emotional state within moments of engaging. Christians therefore should take careful steps in safeguarding their hearts and minds against music that can influence them negatively.

I’m not talking about just avoiding worldly forms of music, but forms of music that teach untrue doctrines and false truths not found in the Bible.

If a song sings about God being lonely in Heaven and not wanting it without us, it can and will influence our thinking, even if it’s on a small level we cannot pick up on.

A frog stays in a boiling pot for a reason, and the same can go with the music we listen to daily.

Slow and tiny adjustments over time can become huge. We must be careful in all that we do.

Don’t like what I’m saying? Don’t just take my word for it, take it from God.

15 See then that you walk circumspectly, not as fools but as wise, 16 redeeming the time, because the days are evil.
17 Therefore do not be unwise, but understand what the will of the Lord is.

Ephesians 5:15-17

Music can stir us emotionally.

Music can lead us down paths both good and bad.

Music is powerful and influential. It’s also a gift from God. Watch this sermon on how music plays an important role in the life of a believer.
