His Mercies Go Before Me

By Quasiblogo · Feb 23, 2021 · ·
  1. A hymn melody came to me this morning, when I pondered the opening words of Ephesians 2:8, For by grace are you saved through faith. And, so these words, for a new song (Psalms 96:1; Ephesians 5:18-20):

    His mercies go before me,
    his good will to arrange.
    Just how the steward and sovereignty
    accomplish, God’s to say.
    We know our humble part,
    How faith is seed to make
    us see the Kingdom of the Christ
    whose mercy meets our praise.

    His mercies go before me
    our trust need never lag,
    for gift is good as Giver gives
    and his, a treasure, stays
    as testament to cleave
    to me as Wisdom’s way,
    heart and thoughts laid at his feet,
    thus instruments of grace.*

    ”First love” comes by grace first,**
    from Christ who calls to save.
    The opened gift pours forth works;
    submission such craft craves.
    Where does our faith find birth,
    that good should grow in our wake?
    His mercies, so before me, planned:
    intentional always!

    Thank you. This, you shared, ministered to me.
    I had anxiety today, about a new doctor. I cried out to the Lord and he sent me this song in my heart:

    Your writing felt very close to the same message. So, I felt God used your sharing to encourage me. Thank you
