Wonderful, Merciful Savior/There Is No Other Name, Steve Camp

A young Steve Camp

In doing these music posts, I am always looking for music that brings Joy and Glory to our Great Savior! I have been looking for this music 'Wonderful, Merciful Savior' on You Tube for a while! But I just found it, and so am starting in with a thankful heart!

Steve Camp is "well-known for his strong views that Christian musicians are called to make direct, uncompromising music that confronts the world with the message of the Scriptures. Following Martin Luther's 95 thesis, on Reformation Day (October 31), 1998, he sent out his own 107 theses calling for a reformation in contemporary Christian music."

As a young man, he was encouraged by friend Keith Green to take a deeper stand for the gospel of Jesus, which he has done ever since. Once John MacArthur introduced at a him as "a Keith Green with theology". When studying music and business, he received a working knowledge of Scripture and theology, mastering the Greek language, and he has accomplished a library of historical and theological works.

Here are some of the things he has to say about MERCY:

""O give thanks unto the Lord: for He is good, for His mercy endureth forever" (Psalm 136:1). For this perfection of the Divine character God is greatly to be praised. Three times over in as many verses does the Psalmist here call upon the saints to give thanks unto the Lord for this adorable attribute. And surely this is the least that can be asked for from those who have been such bounteous gainers by it."

" His mercy is "great" (1 Kings 3:6), "plenteous" (Psalm 86:5), "tender" (Luke 1:78), "abundant" (1 Peter 1:3); it is "from everlasting to everlasting upon them that fear Him" (Psalm 103:17). Well may we say with the Psalmist, "I will sing aloud of Thy mercy" (Psalm 59:16). "


He is Lord of heaven, Lord of earth
Our prophet, Priest and King
He has triumphed o'er sin's fatal curse

O death were is thy sting

There is no other name
There is no other name
Under heaven, whereby we are saved

There is no other name
Jesus that name,
Jehovah saves
O seed of Abraham By the blood of His cross
He has laid Salvation's perfect plan

Wonderful, merciful Saviour
Precious Redeemer and Friend
Who would have thought that a Lamb could

Rescue the souls of men
Oh, You rescue the souls of men

Counselor, Comforter, Keeper

Spirit we long to embrace
You offer hope when our hearts have
Hopelessly lost the way
Oh, we hopelessly lost the way

You are the One that we praise

You are the One we adore

You give the healing and grace

Our hearts always hunger for
Oh, our hearts always hunger for

Almighty, Infinite Father
Faithfully loving
Your own
Here in our weakness You find us
Falling before Your throne

Oh, we're falling before Your throne
