Sandra McCracken is great. A songstress with a voice soft and soulful. I love this version by her of thy mercy my God.
Makes me think of this part of Psalm:
Psalm 51:1-4, 12 NIV84
Have mercy on me, O God,
according to your unfailing love;
according to your great compassion
blot out my transgressions.
Wash away all my iniquity
and cleanse me from my sin.
For I know my transgressions,
and my sin is always before me.
Against you, you only, have I sinned
and done what is evil in your sight,
so that you are proved right when you speak
and justified when you judge.
Restore to me the joy of your salvation
and grant me a willing spirit, to sustain me.
Mercy is mentioned over 60 times by the writer of Psalms by name alone; obviously this is a serious & needed characteristic of God, most often in reference to chastisements from God.
What sweet mercy He brings!
