New Wesleyan Church Video and Song

1.13.2014 — 1 Comment

This brand-new video from The Wesleyan Church is a fantastic glimpse into our denomination:

The video features commentary by my buddy Matt LeRoy and a song written by Daniel Rife. The song is entitled “Depth of Mercy” and was originally written by Charles Wesley in 1740. Daniel has given a great, modern, rendering and has made it available for download here.

The lyrics to “Depth of Mercy” –

We have spilled His precious blood
Trampled on the Son of God
Depth of mercy can there be
Mercy still reserved for me

I have long withstood His grace
Long provoked Him to His face
Followed all except our Lord
We our master have ignored

Jesus answer from above
Is not all your nature love
Now incline me to repent
Let me now my sins lament

Look unto the throne of grace
Christ our sin He does erase
Why to me this waste of love
Ask my advocate above

There for me the Savior stands
Shows his wounds and spreads his hands
God is love I know I feel
Jesus weeps and loves me still
There for me the Savior stands
Shows his wounds and spreads his hands
God is love I know I feel
Let us be forever healed

Free to sing free to dance
Free to praise free to love
(Let us be forever healed)
