The Jesus Prayer in Song


The Jesus Prayer

Words and Music by Cathy Scott

 

Chorus

Lord Jesus Christ, have mercy on me.

Lord Jesus Christ, have mercy on me!

 

1. Lord I acknowledge you as lord of my life,

I will seek your guidance, try to do as you like.

 

Lord Jesus Christ, have mercy on me.

Lord Jesus Christ, have mercy on me!

 

2. Jesus you have known my name from the womb

and Jesus you have told me yours so I can call on you.

 

Lord Jesus Christ, have mercy on me.

Lord Jesus Christ, have mercy on me!

 

3. Christ is a title appointed by God.

God’s annointed king, saviour of the whole world.

 

Lord Jesus Christ, have mercy on me.

Lord Jesus Christ, have mercy on me!

 

4. Mercy that stems from your infinite grace.

Forgive all that I have done and all I’ve left undone.

 

Lord Jesus Christ, have mercy on me.

Lord Jesus Christ, have mercy on me!

 

5. On me, the least of your followers,

Despite my straying bring me home to you.

 

Lord Jesus Christ, have mercy on me.

Lord Jesus Christ, have mercy on me!
