Lyrics
Mercy and Grace

That day is fast upon us now
The puzzle pieces falling
The grace of God is near to you
Can you not hear Him calling?

When strife and turmoil cloud us in
Our hearts can be despairing
Yet in the presence of the Lord
Is joy and peace and caring

I once was ruled by all I felt
Desire, fear, depression
Sin was the master over me
And guilt from my transgression

But Jesus washed that all away
Forgave me so completely
Who was, and is, and is to come
His Spirit now within me

His mercy and his grace appeared
To give to me salvation
This is a gift from God on high
The author of Creation

So if you hear his voice today
I pray your heart won’t harden
The risen Lord will give you life
His love will freely pardon

Praise God! Praise God!

So if you hear his voice today
You may not have tomorrow
Repent from sin and turn to God
He’ll give you joy for sorrow

What can I say....

High marks all the way around. Love that fiddle that kicks in every now and then... and as per usual your vocal/harmonies are so pleasant to listen to. Nice work on the guitar too. And you know I can't quibble with the lyrics. Sing it.....

Love this
This is classic Roxylee. I know I've said that before, but it's your tone and heart that adds such a touch to any song. Those who have ears let them hear.

Hey!
No fair... you don't give credit to the composer and your backup band... :-) But knowing you, I'll assume you wrote and scored this, because you do that sometimes, and it always sounds this good. The fiddle really adds a lot to this, but as always, your jubilant and harmonious voice really makes this stand out as a gorgeous piece of music, from a beautiful heart. I might be tempted to cut some of the lower midrange in your voice and slightly boost the treble in your main singing track (not the harmonies) to add some crispness, but only a touch... very nice work here!
ttfn,
Drakonis

And I was gonna
ask you to do a sound check first, then figured it's Saturday and who wants to work on the weekend? ;-) I'll keep it in mind for the next one, though. Yeh, it's me and my Gibson, plus Garageband bass and Boldt violin. (I put all the particulars in the mp3 info box). Thank you, my friend. I'm glad you enjoyed the song. :-)

Rox,
OK, Now that's Bluegrass Gospel! at least it has that sound to me with the guitar and violin. Your playing it sweet and so is the production here. Of course your voice makes anything you sing so personal. I would have to say that this genre is your best, it just flows from you. I must remark too that it puts the Lord's invitation in a personal framework and that makes it real for me.
Very well done all around,
Stephen

Thank you, Irish guy
er, Stephen. I really had fun adding in the bass and violin to give this the bluegrass feel. Yes, the Lord's mercy and grace is very real to me, and I love praising Him for His gift of salvation. Thank you for listening and sharing the comment. Your latest is a hoot!!

Alleluia!
I hope you are singing this song at your church, Roxy. It is so simple and compelling: just WHAT IT IS. The tune and lyrics are completely complementary, and your vocal is the perfect delivery vehicle. Such a joyful, but not-over-the-top praise song— Sincere and devotional. ... (Bring up your flute & guitars a bit!) Praise God! indeed.

Thank you, Paul
Maybe someday I'll sing this in public, if my voice holds out. (you can;t imagine how many takes it takes;-) I don't know what you mean by over the top praise song, but i'm glad you liked this one. :-) Next time I'll bring up the instruments. They really must be too low because the flute was a violin. heehee

Hi Roxy
It's been a while since I logged on to Macjams and I was happy to see you've uploaded some new songs. This is what you do best - i'm guessing it's why you put on Earth in the first place!
Lovely performance.
