Grace and Mercy

God’s grace is a gift of undeserved and unmerited favor and His mercy (compassion on us) doesn’t give us what our sins deserve. For we have all sinned and fallen short of the glory of God but we’re justified freely by His generous gift of grace through the redemption that’s in Christ Jesus(Romans 3:23 & 24).

Just recently, our family finished a study on Grace and Mercy and what we learned is God is full of both. He also wants Believers to be full of them too!

Throughout the Bible God’s constant message are mercy and grace. To understand we must study the Word. I’ve assembled a list of 20 scriptures on the two. My prayer is that through your study of scripture, you will receive revelation on God’s generous grace and ever abundant mercy!

I must admit that I’m in love with the pure worship album Breakthrough that came forth from Chris McClarney.  The album expresses the true heart of a worshipper throughout each song. It’s as if the Holy Spirit wrote the whole thing and assigned Chris to sing it. Praise God! 

And of course, our featured song comes from this album. The track Over and Over gives lyrical and musical proclamation into the mercy and grace found in Jesus Christ through God. It is based on the scripture from Lamentations 3:22-23( see above).  

Without further delay, here’s  Over and Over with attached lyrics. May the fullness of the grace and mercy available through our Lord Jesus be revealed to you, Amen✌️.


 Verse 1
 Oh the beauty  
 To think of who You are is overwhelming 
 The promises You make 
 They will uphold me 
 How You hold me
 Your compassions never end
mercies are new over and over
mercies are new over and over
surely as the morning 
comes, You’re faithful
sing of your love over and over
sing of your love over and over
sing with every setting 
 You’re faithful 

 Verse 2
 Never failing 
 Everytime I fall
 You’re there to catch me
 When I try to run
 Your kindness chases me
 How You chase me
 Your compassions never end

 REPEAT Chorus

Your favor will last for a lifetime
Your anchor will hold through the night
With every breath I will sing of 
Your love
Your love

Bridge 2
Your favor will last for a lifetime
Your anchor will hold through the night
With every breath I will sing of 
Your love
Your love

Hallelujah, hallelujah
