Our newest song: Lord, you hear the cry (Lord, have mercy)

We're delighted to share with you our newest song, from our newest writer. Geraldine Latty is a name that will be familiar to many of you, and we're thrilled that Geraldine and her husband Carey have been getting involved with RESOUND over the last year or so. This song is extra-special to us because we recorded some of it at the National Worship Songwriters Day in September last year. That's about 50 people who all feel invested in it, and discovered what a great song it is to sing.

Lord you hear the cry (Lord have mercy) is a wonderful song of praise, prayer, hope and a cry for justice. And it sounds particularly good when everyone breaks into harmonies in the chorus! Geraldine writes:

"...the song is not simply an invocation or demand, but an expression, a cry that reminds us of God's nature, God's past promises; a cry that holds on to hope in what Resurrection Day has accomplished; a cry that is firmly rooted in the kingdom of God coming through us: mercy I receive, pouring out in loving."

As always, you can find piano score, choir score, lead sheet, chord chart, backing track and mp3 on the song page.
