Amen Lyrics

Words and music by Shaun Groves

My body breaks beneath the weight
Of toil and trouble, fears and fights
Sickness in me, world against me
I cry to You tonight

Christ have mercy
Lord have mercy
Holy Healer
Strength within
Pass me not
Forsake me not, Lord
Amen

My enemies are whispering
They pray my name may die
So few to trust, so few are just
I cry to You tonight

Christ have mercy
Lord have mercy
Faithful Brother
Closest Friend
Pass me not
Forsake me not, Lord
Amen, Amen

My heart is dim, It's always been
I turn from what is right
Passions of youth tear me from truth
I cry to You tonight

Christ have mercy
Lord have mercy
Sinless Savior
Judge of men
Pass me not
Forsake me not, Lord
Amen, Amen

Story Behind The Song:
MATTHEW 5:5 "Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth."

Jesus continues, "Blessed are the meek." Mourning leads us here. Jesus, tethering this radical new belief system to the ancient faith His audience was familiar with, often links the beatitudes to familiar passages from their Old Testament scriptures. In this case Jesus says the meek will "inherit the land," and the crowd recognized this phrase from Psalm 37:1-11 where David described the character of those who will inherit the new world to come. They are people who trust God so whole-heartedly that they fear no man, are not angry, do not worry and are teachable and obedient.

The meek became this way when they chose to "commit" their way to the Lord, David says. The Hebrew word for "commit" means "to roll." We roll our poverty onto the wealth of God's grace, our anger onto the justice of the Judge of men, and our worry onto the generous and able hands of the Father. We surrender to One greater than us and all our sin. And Jesus says this commitment, this surrender, is essential to becoming a disciple of the Messiah. It's what mourning moves us to do with our impoverished spirits.
