River of Mercy

A collection of 21 songs for youth-led worship

River of Mercy

River of Mercy contains 21 original songs of youth worship and praise accompanied by a liturgical worship setting designed for teens. You’ll find a unique collection of simple praise choruses and hymns for youthful worship that have come out of our background in Christian outdoor ministry. The songs focus on the mercy and grace of God, and our call to be loving and gracious in our daily lives. We think you love the music and find many of the songs useful in your congregational setting.

The River of Mercy CD also supports a youth mime drama entitled Shine! It’s a powerful and unique presentation about the life and ministry of Jesus Christ. For more information go to our Mime Drama page to learn more about Shine! and the three mime dramas from Cross the Sky Ministries.

“The music by Cross the Sky was wonderful: simple melodies, easy to learn words, with wonderful messages.” – youth director

“Thank you for your infectious love of music and for using it in the best way possible…to glorify God. After all He is the one who gave us these gifts, right? I see so many people every day who can’t seem to get past the proudness of it all. Thank you for writing, playing and singing music that actually means something.” – college counselor
