MERCY –PSALM 124

Nothing but Jesus’s power and wisdom saved me, evil is a powerful foe
The Lord is on my side
He is my defender
I shout- praise the Lord for His great mercy, Jesus saves my soul

Evil rose up to fight my faith
Mankind is against me, evil accuses me
Hatefully, hopelessly, cowardly
I shout- praise the Lord for His great mercy, Jesus saves my soul

Eager for my destruction, evil wants to destroy me
Jesus declares –that cruel throat can’t swallow, fire will not destroy
The only reason I’m still here is that Jesus is alive, Christ is here with me
I shout- praise the Lord for His great mercy, Jesus saves my soul

Trouble is here to stay, it is always around
I am tossed around but not drowned
The world’s enmity spares nothing, Jesus alone saves me
I shout- praise the Lord for His great mercy, Jesus saves my soul

Mankind is haughty, scornful, embittered
Pride and contempt seeks to destroy God’s people including me
If Jesus had not intervened I would not have survived
I shout- praise the Lord for His great mercy, Jesus saves my soul

Nothing can destroy us
Jesus owns us
He will never give us to our enemies
I shout- praise the Lord for His great mercy, Jesus saves my soul

Like a bird I am easily enticed into the snare
I am weak and foolish; easily defeated by evil
What great mercy for one so weak, Jesus keeps ahold of me
I shout- praise the Lord for His great mercy, Jesus saves my soul

The ground of my confidence is Jesus
In all trials present and to come
Jesus my Creator and Preserver, He that fashioned us will watch over us
I shout- praise the Lord for His great mercy, Jesus saves my soul
