Encouraging Song of the Week: Less Like Me (Zach Williams)

I was thinking about this song as I was preparing a Sunday message on Mercy. A great reminded to show mercy and grace and be more like Jesus. They should get an award for the most creative lyric video! What songs are encouraging you this week?

Lyrics: Less Like Me

Oh I have days I lose the fight
Try my best but just don’t get it right
Well I talk a talk that I don’t walk
And miss the moments right before my eyes

Somebody with a hurt that I could have helped
Somebody with a hand that I could have held
When I just can’t see past myself
Oh Lord help me be

A little more like mercy
A little more like grace
A little more like kindness, goodness, love, and faith
A little more like patience
A little more like peace
A little more like Jesus
A little less like me

Yeah, there’s no denying I have changed
I’ve been changed from who I used to be
But even at my best I must confess
I need help to see the way you see

Somebody with a hurt that I could have helped
Somebody with a hand that I could have held
When I just can’t see past myself
Oh Lord help me be

A little more like mercy
A little more like grace
A little more like kindness, goodness, love, and faith
A little more like patience
A little more like peace
A little more like Jesus
A little less like me

Oh to feed the beggar on the street
Love to be your hands and feet
Freely give what I receive
Lord help me be

I want a friendship first above all else
Love my neighbor as myself
In the moments no one sees
Lord help me be

A little more living
Everything I preach
A little more like Jesus
A Little less like me
