Have Mercy (Single) [edit]
by Michael Boggs | Genre: AC/Inspo | Release Date: August 20, 2021
 

Dove Award-winning singer, songwriter and worship leader Michael Boggs releases his first solo offering in seven years, "Have Mercy," on Aug. 20. Available to pre-order now, the confessional ballad brims with honest self-reflection and sincere repentance. In the song, Boggs simultaneously exposes and owns his envy, privilege and selfishness, pleading with God to extend His grace amidst humanity's missteps.

"There's not a ton of songs in the worship world that are corporate confessions. We sing a lot about three categories: the glory of God, the gravity of sin and the grandeur of grace. That's needed and healthy, but we don't sing a lot of confession songs," Boggs offers of the transparent track he co-wrote with Josh Nichols. "And so we just thought, 'what would it sound like if we were to confess our own shortcomings and misgivings?'"

"Have Mercy" does just that, with listeners seemingly eavesdropping on a private prayer. While he realizes confession often has a negative connotation attached to it, Boggs concedes that confession is a bridge to the Father.

"It's the one thing that restores communion with God, so why would we be afraid of something that brings God closer, not further away?" he insists. "Although it's sometimes brutal to look in the mirror of your own confession, the Lord isn't afraid of it. So hopefully this song invites people to come a little bit closer to the Lord through confession."
