Blessed Father, hear our cry.
Cast out sin, but draw us nigh.
Not for merit—we have none—
For Your mercy, for Your Son.

Blessed Jesus, make our plea.
In Your name to God we flee;
Through Your blood we seek His face;
By Your priesthood claim His grace.

Blessed Spirit, meet our need;
In our silence intercede.
Translate groans we cannot speak;
Heal the broken, help the weak.

Triune God, please grant our prayer
As Your glory we declare.
May Your promised kingdom come;
May Your will on earth be done.

  1. Really nice. Simple. Beautiful. We sang it at prayer meeting last night and folks really seemed to be blessed by the text and the setting.

  2. That’s great, Mark. Thanks for letting us know. Praise the Lord.

    And having used it withing a few hours of it’s posting must be some sort of record. Sweet. :)

  3. So excited to see another new song! I love the verse about the Spirit praying for us.

  4. […] Chris Anderson’s new hymn is lovely on many levels.. […]

  5. Chris,
    This one seems great too. Our pastor led us in “His Robes for Mine” twice as we shared the elements of communion last Sunday night. It’s become our hymn for the month, and my soul has been refreshed by its message–“God estranged from God”! Thank you for ministering to us through the hymns and making them free and available.
