Seven-time Dove Award-nominated singer/songwriter, producer, author and television/podcast host, Andrew Greer releases his new single "Mercy (feat. Cindy Morgan)." The song is now available on all digital platforms.
Greer opens up about the heart behind the song, "A couple years after college, I was living out a particularly hard time. I found myself in another state, wandering the forest (figuratively and literally!), alone with a heartache. Each morning around daybreak, I'd pull the covers back, plant my feet on the floor, and utter this prayer: Good morning, God. Please don't leave me alone.
"Every morning, same prayer, for months.
"You see, I had come to the end of myself. In fact, if I had to name my greatest fear it would be `Me.' Left to my own devices, my own diagnoses and prescriptions for whatever it is that is ailing my mind and heart in any particular season, I always get to the end of me. I run in circles. I get tired. I wear out. And somewhere just past depleted, I find a mustard seed of courage and I cry, Mercy.
"And within this exhale for help, there awakens this Spirit who exchanges all of my grunting and gritting and stubborn striving and dead-end effort for peace. For calm. A lifting of my head. A kiss for my tears. A path to healing. A light in the darkness. Enough mercy to make it through to the other side.
"This song was written out of that prayer to God, Please don't leave me alone."
