Your Mercy is Good – Isaiah 30 –

This, another day that my God has arrayed

The beauty, the splendor —

I can see it all now

Our history’s broken and far from His light

We sought the liars, the ones who once told us

Just what we wanted to hear

We turned our backs on You, Lord

Told You to leave us in pieces —

We’ll figure it out; don’t need Your wisdom or truth…

But I never knew this is where I would be

And Your strong arms surrounding

Give me grace to be free

You stayed and waited for me to run back to Your love

Oh Lord, Your mercy is good

These battles we’ve tried to fight by our own strength

After all, don’t we have what we need?

But You waited for us, to be gracious to us

And to bless us beyond what we’ve seen

I never knew this is where I would be

And Your strong arms surrounding

Give me grace to be free

You stayed and waited for me to run back to Your love

Oh Lord, Your mercy is good

You’ve given words of direction

With firm promises of peace

You say You’ll heal and restore

And be the joy of your people

Mighty God, let it be today

Mighty God, let it be today

I never knew this is where I would be

And Your strong arms surrounding

Give me grace to be free

You stayed and waited for me to run back to Your love

Oh Lord, Your mercy is good
