Repentance – A Prayer Covenant Song

A musical gift to enhance your worship—either at church or in your quiet time.

Mariemont Community Church in Cincinnati has been a special friend of the Prayer Covenant since Jerry Kirk began the Prayer Covenant ministry in 2012.In fact, their pastor, Denis Beausejour encouraged Jerry Kirk to begin the Prayer Covenant ministry as Jerry’s full time focus!

MCC has used the 40 Day Prayer Covenant several times. One of the tasty fruits of this summer’s Prayer Covenant focus was music. Their worship team wrote and performed songs on the Prayer Covenant themes.

Recently their worship leader Paul Rasmussen sent me two of their productions on love and repentance.As you will hear, the vocal quality is clear and warm, the atmosphere/tone is reflective and longing, the guitar work and the cello together are rich and the lyrics are rich and worshipful. Both songs created a hunger in my heart–

We are posting the songs and the words on our site so you can enjoy them. Paul says, “feel free to use them as God leads” —keeping in mind that the copyright belongs to the Mariemont Community Church worship team.Who knows, maybe Paul and his team will do all ten themes and produce a CD?!

Lyrics

Wash me clean from, every sin I, know I break your, heart again Sometimes,
I just walk away

Trying to build on, shifting sand I, know I’ll fall down, once again I cry
You lift up my face

And like the dawn, your grace is rising You’ve made a way to make things new

Shine your light on, my dark places, No more shadows, there’s nowhere to hide.
I lay down my pride
Here you meet me, heart laid open, needing more my, Spirit broken again,
Still I hear your song

And like the dawn, your grace is rising You’ve made a way to make things new
And like the dawn, Your love is rising You’ve made a way to make me new

You captured my heart, You dance over me You sing a new song, that tells me I’m free So keep me there till the end of all my days
I’ll run to the light when you say I’m wrong I’ll find my way home, to where I belong Hold me safe in your arms of perfect love
