Have Mercy Now on Us

1. Have Mercy Now on Us

Written by: Rachel Wilhelm

Chorus:
Have mercy now on us (Have Mercy)
Have mercy now on us (Have mercy Lord) Have mercy now on us (Have Mercy)
Have mercy now on us (Have mercy Lord)

1. When we’re struggling to make ends meet When we’re stumbling on our feet
When we’re tired, when we’re weak
When we’re so thirsty, we cannot speak

Chorus

2. Break our hearts, our love renew We are blind here without You Tasting gall, tasting death
May we fear You with each breath

Chorus

I wrote this song in 2005 when I would sit and play guitar at night using my thumb as a pick so I wouldn't wake up my kids. When Andy Zipf and I worked on it in the studio, he said to me, "Rachel, this is a gospel song." We changed it up from the original and made it sound like a groovy cloud.
