Selah – Wonderful, Merciful Savior lyrics

Wonderful, merciful Savior
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

    This song summarizes the reason we are alive and defines our purpose for living: Jesus( our Savior and Friend) and God the Father seeks those that will worship Him in Spirit and in Truth. We can't do this without the help of the Holy Spirit ( our Comforter and Helper who, when we go astray, convicts us and helps us see that we have moved astray and helps us to come back into a right relationship with the Father).

    It means our hearts always hunger for God and His word and this song is telling us the story of Jesus and His great sacrifice for us and how He died on the cross to wash away all of our sins also its telling us when God comes how we will be worshiping Him and bowing down to Him when he is on His throne and loving Him and singing to Him about how great He is and how amazing He is.

    It is god's love and mercy that has brought us salvation, it is nothing we did ourselves. In fact god chose us it was not our doing. It is a lovely song of praise and adoration in humility to the god who loves so much that he gave his very best to rescue all humanity. As many as are willing to receive jesus christ. It's free salvation is yours to receive, please say yes to him today while you still have the chance because no one is assured of tomorrow and god loves you so much.

    I love how this song refers to Christ as the Comforter, as does Scripture. The Holy Spirit is the Father and the Son coming to us Themselves. There is no other Name under heaven given among men whereby we must be saved. God's Word never tells us to worship or pray to another being.
    The idea of a separate person is spurious. A suggestion of Constantine at the manipulated council of Nicea.
    There are three persons in the Godhead: The Father, the Son as God, and the Son as man.
    In His humanity, Christ conquered sin, that we in Him can do so as well.
    Glory hallelujah! Praise Him with me!
