Let everything that has breath praise the LORD!

~ Psalm 150:6 ~
Let everything that has breath praise the LORD!
Praise the Lord!

The song for this week is an old 18th century hymn by Augustus Toplady "A Debtor To Mercy Alone" updated by Indelible Grace Music.  May it draw your heart more toward Christ and the gospel.

If you're unfamiliar with Indelible Grace Music, I highly recommend their music.  They take wonderful old hymns they are rich and solid and put them to new music—a great remedy for some of the fluff that is out there today.

A debtor to mercy alone,
Of covenant mercy I sing;
Nor fear, with Thy righteousness on,
My person and offering to bring.

The terrors of law and of God
With me can have nothing to do;
My Savior's obedience and blood
Hide all my transgressions from view

The work which His goodness began,
The arm of His strength will complete;
His promise is yea and amen,
And never was forfeited yet.

Things future, nor things that are now,
Not all things below nor above
Can make Him His purpose forego,
Or sever my soul from His love.

My name from the palms of His hands
Eternity will not erase;
Impressed on His heart it remains
In marks of indelible grace.

Yes, I to the end shall endure,
As sure as the earnest is given
More happy, but not more secure,
The glorified spirits in heaven.
