Approach My Soul, The Mercy Seat

This is a beautiful new song from Jamie Barnes of Sojourn Music. You can stream the entire album, which is comprised of two EPs, for free at Sojourn Music’s Bandcamp site.

Approach my soul, the mercy seat
Where Holy One and helpless meet
There fall before my Judges’ feet
Thy promise is my only plea, O God

Send wings to lift the clutch of sin
You who dwell between the cherubim
From war without and fear within
Relieve the grief from the shoulders of crumbling men

O God — Pour out your mercy to me
My God, Oh what striking love to bleed.

Fashion my heart in your alchemy
With the brass to front the devil’s perjury
And surefire grace my Jesus speaks
I must. I will. I do believe. O God.

O God — Pour out your mercy to me
My God, Oh what striking love to bleed.

Approach my soul, the mercy seat
Where Holy One and helpless meet
There fall before my Judges’ feet
Thy promise is my only plea, O God

—Jamie Barnes
Based on a hymn by John Newton
