Where Love and Mercy Meet

Behold the Cross of Christ

Arranged by Marty Parks

Jesus made an astounding claim in Luke 4. When He proclaimed that He was the fulfillment of Isaiah's prophecy, it was more than a résumé of credentials; it was a mission statement. In fact, it was a commitment – to you and to me – that there would be a place where sinners can find mercy; the afflicted can find healing; the broken can find compassion, and the outcast can find dignity. Behold the cross of Christ…it is the place where love and mercy meet.
This profound spiritual theme is movingly captured by veteran arranger Marty Parks in Where Love & Mercy Meet, the latest offering from Simply Word Easter. Combining popular songs by Michael W. Smith, Bill and Gloria Gaither, and Darlene Zschech and Reuben Morgan with beloved classics, this musical features engaging worship sequences with easy-to-learn SATB choral parts and arrangements for one male and one female solos (with optional men/women unison), making it ideal for smaller choirs or those with limited rehearsal time. A well-designed accompaniment DVD is available to enhance your production, as well as an optional small-cast dramatic script by Kim Messer that will bring the themes of the musical into a powerful contemporary focus. This Easter, invite your congregation and community to come to the place where love and mercy meet – the cross of Jesus Christ.

Effective and moving

Review by Saints and Singers Chorus


We chose this cantata for our Easter 2013 performance. The music is easily accessible for choirs of any size, age, and ability. We had an effortless rehearsal period and everyone memorized the pieces very quickly.
We performed this show six times over the last month, and the audience response was overwhelmingly positive. Several times people came up to me and said that this cantata is one of our better performances (this chorus has been around 36 years) this Cantata really speaks to a modern Christian audience and lifts their hearts.
I highly recommend this piece.
God Bless
