“Approach My Soul, The Mercy Seat” – Free Download

In all the crazy traffic Justin Taylor’s blog received over the last few days, I caught up on several of his past posts.  I caught this one fortunately and thought I would share it.  Visit this particular post to find a free download of “Approach My Soul, The Mercy Seat” by Sojourn Music.  And while you’re there have look around at the fullness of Taylor’s blog, which is a wealth of biblical knowledge and resources.

To find out more about Sojourn Music, visit the group’s website.

The reverent and beautiful lyrics to the song are listed here:

Approach my soul, the mercy seat
Where Holy One and helpless meet
There fall before my Judges’ feet
Thy promise is my only plea, O God

Send wings to lift the clutch of sin
You who dwell between the cherubim
From war without and fear within
Relieve the grief from the shoulders of crumbling men

O God—Pour out your mercy to me
My God, Oh what striking love to bleed.

Fashion my heart in your alchemy
With the brass to front the devil’s perjury
And surefire grace my Jesus speaks
I must. I will. I do believe. O Lord.

I realized recently that so much of what I don’t write – all that stuff floating in my head –  probably should be articulated in some way.  If nothing else, it’ll help me become a better communicator.

That’s what you can expect on this blog: posts on topics dear to me.  If you keep reading, you’ll find out what those topics are.
