To the God whose name is Mercy

A song for today

 

From the album My Name Is Palestine

Chorus Inspired by words of Pope Francis

Verses influenced by words of US Trappist Monk Thomas Merton

 

To The God Whose Name Is Mercy

Chorus:

To the God whose name is mercy

To the God whose name is mercy

To the generous God of mercy

We take our stand with you

 

So tell the earth to shake with marching feet

Of messengers of peace –

Proclaim my way of love

To every nation and every race –

Show mercy and show love

 

Chorus

 

Let old ways be over – no more hate

There shall be no more war

My people shall be one

To every nation and every race –

Show mercy and show love

 

Chorus

 

We take our stand with you

Reach out our hand to you

God of the just heart

God of the just heart

In the challenging words of the Sermon on the Mount

‘Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for justice

They shall be satisfied’

You remind us that satisfaction does not lie

Where we might expect it
In the security of wealth and privilege

But in the joy of doing what is right

And in working to assert the value and dignity of other people

Because this is the calling of your community

This builds relationships and just societies

This brings deep satisfaction

As all are made welcome.

 

So keep us hungering and thirsting

For the values that make us all whole

And then we know the healing fountains will start.

Garth Hewitt writes redemption songs

and then sings them without fear.

His voice comes through clearly,

challenging us by his witness to act for justice. His is a brave voice,

needed more than ever in a fearful world, and in a sometimes timid church.

Please God, it will help us

sing redemption songs of our own.
