His mercy is more

His Mercy is More is a Modern hymn by Matt Papa and Matt Boswell. It originally appeared on Papa’s “Church Songs” project. My favourite rendition of this wonderful song is by the Praise and Harmony Singers. 

The song was inspired by a John Newton sermon.

Are not you amazed sometimes that you should have so much as a hope, that, poor and needy as you are, the Lord thinketh of you? But let not all you feel discourage you. For if our physician is almighty, our disease cannot be desperate and if He casts none out that comes to Him, why should you fear? Our sins are many, but His mercies are more: our sins are great, but His righteousness is greater: we are weak, but He is power. Most of our complaints are owing to unbelief, and the remainder of a legal spirit. And these evils are not removed in a day.  — John Newton

Watch Praise and Harmony sing His Mercy is More from Beautiful God.

His mercy is more is a song which celebrates the loving kindness of God.

We celebrate the fact that although our sins are many (and the wages of sin is death) God’s mercy is more.

Verse 1

‘His mercy is more” however, starts piano with a somber vibe. We lament how impossible it seems that our God, who is omniscient and all-knowing, remembers not our wrongs.

And that there exists a love so great, that it counts not the sum of our transgressions.

The authors describe God’s mercy as “a sea without bottom or shore” The reassurance that God’s mercy is more than our sins (sung forte), concludes verse 1.

His mercy is more
Verse 2

Verse 2 portrays God as a patient father who is patient with us and tenderly calls us back to Himself.

No one is exempted from God’s invitation. “He welcomes the weakest, the vilest, the poor”. John tells us that:

If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. — 1 John 1:9

Our sins may be many, but His mercy is more.

Verse 3

This verse talks about God’s kindness. A kindness that was so great that He shed His blood and lost His life for us.

He paid off a debt we could not pay. The verse once again ends with a celebration of God’s immeasurable mercy. “Our sins they are many, but His mercy is more”


That “Praise The Lord” is the actual emotion that we should feel – that mercy “welcomes the weakest, the vilest, the poor” and allows us all to celebrate the fact that “His Mercy Is More.” – Matt Papa 

As you sing this song, be happy and grateful. Ecstatic even. Sing at the top of your voice because while our sins are many, His mercy is more!
