Sunday Lyrics – Lord Have Mercy

I’ve been a fan of Michael W. Smith for a very long time. The very first song I heard from him was Friends. Michael has so many powerful and beautiful songs, it’s hard to choose just one favorite, but if I had to pick, would be my favorite.

Below are the lyrics and you can listen to Michael sing it here.

Jesus, I’ve forgotten the words that You have spoken
Promises that burned within my heart have now grown dim
With a doubting heart I follow the paths of earthly wisdom
Forgive me for my unbelief
Renew the fire again

Lord have mercy
Christ have mercy
Lord have mercy on me


I have built an altar where I worship things of men
I have taken journeys that have drawn me far from You
Now I am returning to Your mercies ever flowing
Pardon my transgressions
Help me love You again


I have longed to know You & Your tender mercies
Like a river of forgiveness ever flowing without end
I bow my heart before You in the goodness of Your presence
Your grace forever shining
Like a beacon in the night
