Sojourn Music is kind enough to let me give away an MP3 from their new Split EP.

So you can download for free “Approach My Soul, The Mercy Seat.” The words and music are by Jamie Barnes, inspired by John Newton’s hymn.

Lyrics below:

Approach my soul, the mercy seat
Where Holy One and helpless meet
There fall before my Judges’ feet
Thy promise is my only plea, O God

Send wings to lift the clutch of sin
You who dwell between the cherubim
From war without and fear within
Relieve the grief from the shoulders of crumbling men

O God—Pour out your mercy to me
My God, Oh what striking love to bleed.

Fashion my heart in your alchemy
With the brass to front the devil’s perjury
And surefire grace my Jesus speaks
I must. I will. I do believe. O Lord.
