Where Mercies Rest- Demo

I recorded a song! Well, I have recorded plenty of songs, but I finally played and recorded the whole thing and posted it up on SoundCloud. Now it is nowhere near where I’d like it to be, definitely a poor performance and recording, but I was so happy to finally share an original song with you all! I would love to hear feedback, comments, or constructive criticism (I promise after I cry tears of anguish I will be grateful for your words).

I originally posted the lyrics to this song a number of weeks ago. I did make some adjustments though, so I will post the lyrics below with the main changes included. (I’m still playing around with how it flows towards the end, so it might be a little different than the recording.) Hope you enjoy it, and hope that it might encourage you, whoever you are, wherever you are. Grace and Peace- Evan.

Where Mercies Rest

VERSE 1

Skin, broken by time
This aching heart of mine
Brittle bones, wrecked by darkness
Where mercies rest
Lungs, choked with dust
Nerves, shot with rust
Tired eyes, flooded with darkness
This is where mercies rest

CHORUS
Come and rest in His mercies
As mercies rest upon you
Hear the lullaby of surrender
From the One who is good
From the One who is true
From the One who loves you

VERSE 2
Columns, cracked and ancient
In this old house of mine
Broken saints racked by darkness
Where mercies rest
Families torn apart
Flocks, frightened by thunder
Liberated slaves hiding in darkness
This is where mercies rest

CHORUS
Come and rest in His mercies
As mercies rest upon you
Hear the lullaby of surrender
From the One who is good
From the One who is true
From the God who loves you

BRIDGE
(Men) As darkness grows
(Women) Come rest, come rest
As nights grow cold
Come rest, come rest
When you’re too tired to try
Come rest, come rest
When you’re all but gone
Come rest, come rest

(Repeat)

This is where mercies rest…

CHORUS
Come and rest in His mercies
As mercies rest upon you
Hear the lullaby of surrender
From the God who is good
From the God who is true
From the God who loves you

 

He loves you…

Come rest...
