Sacrament Hymn: Great Is Thy Mercy

This week I collaborated with a fellow Mormon Tabernacle Choir member to create a new sacrament hymn. He wrote the music and I wrote the lyrics, and I’m really pleased with the result. He has started a new site to post his compositions, and you can check out our combined effort there:

Here are the words:

Great is thy mercy, O Lord, most holy.

We bring our souls as an off’ring to thee.

Great is thy love, more than I comprehend

Infinite, eternal, thy Son, whom thou didst send.

 

Great is thy power, O Lord, most mighty.

Breaking the chains of death and of sin.

Great is thy grace, in saving those who roam.

Blotting even scarlet sins, through Christ who did atone.

 

Great is thy glory, O Lord, most holy.

We leave our burdens at thy feet.

Great is thy plan that gives up hope anew.

Making clear our path as we our covenants renew.
