Mercy on Us, Lord

Words by Nickolas J. Campbell, 2014
Music: tune, PASS ME NOT, by William H. Doane, 1870
Topics: Holy Week, Good Friday, cross, betrayal, arrest, trial, crucifixion, mercy
Scripture: Isaiah 53; Matthew 26-27; Luke 23

United Methodist pastor and hymn writer Nickolas J. Campbell writes of this hymn: "I took the imagery from a section of John Wesley's prayer for Good Friday. The impression in the prayer is more of a word picture, painting the feelings of the betrayal, arrest, trial and crucifixion of Jesus, and how we can relate the story of Jesus to our own story."
