Confession Song

Song by Matt Searles & Ben Slee
CCLI Song #7199457

Lord have mercy on this sinner
For the sake of your great love
Wash away my great transgression
All the wrongs that I have done

For the words that I have spoken
For the thoughts I try to hide
For the promises I’ve broken
For my weakness, for my pride

Ch 1
Lord have mercy! Lord have mercy!
How I need your grace to know
Though my sins are red as scarlet
Wash them whiter than the snow

Praise to God who heard my groaning
Praise to Christ who died for me
He was slain to win my pardon
Shed his blood to make me clean

It is finished! It is finished!
End of guilt and fear and shame!
He has loved me, made me holy:
Brightest treasure of his grace

It is finished! It is finished!
Oh what joy those words afford
None can shake me, nor accuse me
I am hid with Christ in God.
