Based on Luke 6:27–36; Psalm 103:8, 13; Colossians 3:12–13; Corporal Works of Mercy, adapt. MH
The text of “Be Merciful,” drawn from Luke, reminds us to be merciful to others as God is merciful to us; the verses provide concrete examples. Alternate choral settings for the verses (two-part and “backup”) offer some variety. The relaxed tone suggests natural use as a prelude or even at the preparation of gifts, post-Communion, or other times of reflection. Originally written for the Jubilee Year of Mercy, this song will be appropriate as long as the need for mercy remains.
Luke 6:27–36, Psalm 103:8, 13, Colossians 3:12–13
