The Mercy of Our God/Amazing Grace

Story

This is a song I wrote in summer 2012, as I learned and experienced what repentance and forgiveness were really all about--that the Lord would forgive as we repented and partnered with Him, in all things, and that because of His grace, we really could be free of the burden of debt we owed for our mistakes, sins, weaknesses, and shortcomings, not being saddled by them for eternity--not even being saddled by them once we accepted His Atonement, turned to Him, repented in Him, and covenanted in Him.  Those mistakes and sins He can even turn to our good and learning in His perfect plan.  The strains of Amazing Grace run through this, coming full force into the open at the end of the song.  Recording coming soon.  

Lyrics

I’ve made my mistakes, Took a wrong turn or two,

But in the end He brought me back, And taught me what was true.

The choices I’ve made, He’s turned to my good,

With humble heart, I come to Him, His gift now understood.

 

Chorus:

So I sing of His mercy, His sacrifice made full,

I sing of His plan, sing of His light, sing of His all.

He gave me His forgiveness, and made me whole by love.

In Jesus Christ, I’ve found The Way, the Savior’s grace,

The mercy of our God. 

 

The path that I walk, made harder by my will,

Somehow He’s helped me learn my lessons, then promises fulfilled.

So I take up my cross, to follow Him each day.

That’s what He asks, to come to Him, to choose the better way.

 

Chorus:

So I sing of His mercy, My weaknesses made strong,

I sing of His plan, sing of His light, sing of His all.

He gave me His forgiveness, and made me whole by love.

In Jesus Christ, I’ve found The Way, the Savior’s grace,

The mercy of our God. 

 

His  miracle made real in me, Was purchased by His blood.

His life that gives new life to me, He offers in pure love.

 

Chorus, with Amazing Grace 3rdt & 2nd verse:

Through many dangers, toils and snares...
we have already come.
T'was Grace that brought us safe thus far...
and Grace will lead us home,

T'was Grace that taught my heart to fear.
And Grace, my fears relieved.
How precious did that Grace appear...
the hour I first believed.

Chorus:  Amazing grace, chorus echo

Amazing grace, (So I sing of His mercy,)

How sweet the sound, (His sacrifice made full,)

That saved a wretch like me, (I sing of His plan, sing of His light—solo just “sing of His all.”)

I once was lost, but He gave me His forgiveness, but now I’m found, and made me whole by love. (I once was lost—He gave me His forgiveness, and made me whole by love, and now I’m found, if a solo)
Now I see, In Christ, The Only Way, the Savior’s grace, The mercy of our God.  (Was blind, but now, I see.)

 

Lord Jesus Christ, He is the Way. 

Amazing grace, The mercy of our God.

New: Glenn Rawson Stories & Sheet Music PDFs

Please check out my new sections, Glenn Rawson Stories and Sheet Music PDFs under Sacred Music. 

Sheet music is finally becoming available!

I LOVE sharing this music with you! 

PLEASE READ to see what you can do for me! 

My goal is to give you something that you can use, not something that will clutter up your files because it doesn't suit the abilities or circumstances of your performer(s).  If what you get doesn't work for your circumstances, please contact me and we will work together to modify the key, the difficulty of the piano part, or the treble/bass configuration so it is something you can use.  

Currently I have decided that I will offer my music, both sheet music PDFs and mp3 downloads, for free.  There are many others who do sell their music, but for me, the time, energy, and emotional mindspace involved in selling it does not make it worth what little I might make at that route.  Please use this music to the fullest.  That's the greatest thing I want.  And a few miracles to help my family that come when we put our trust in Him and let go of our agendas. 

I know there are many out there who don't like to take anything for free.  If you'd like, you can donate through the GoFundMe link here gofund.me/cjvzvk or on my homepage. 

I would love a continuing relationship with those use this music, in a way that we can both benefit from. I may update this song as it continues to be performed and used--and as hard as I have tried to edit it, there may be a mistake that slips through--let me know if you find something.  Also, if you have any great suggestions, let me know.  Please give me your email through my website and I will send you updates, as well as new music as it becomes available. ‚Äč

You can also like my pages on Facebook, ChristineMonsonMusic.org and WeSingofChrist.org, or subscribe to the YTouTube Channels with the same names.  Please share links to this music from these two websites, these Facebook pages, and from Youtube on your social media pages so we can share this music, and the spirit and truths in it, with as many as possible.

These downloads give permission to you to make copies for you and any group you are a part of.  However, as a courtesy, and to assist me, if others you know want to perform this at another time and place, with another group, please have them download this themselves.  I also don't own the inspiration you might receive.  You can modify it as you need.  However, I would love to know when and how you use it!  Send those stories to me.  It keeps me going! 

These small things you can do will greatly assist me in this ongoing project of writing and recording this music and making it available for you and everyone else.   

You can listen to and download these songs and sheet music either here at this website, or at freeldssheetmusic.org.  In the future, much of this music will also be streamed and shared on Youtube with video. 

Thank you!  

Christine
