NASHVILLE, Tenn.—“Mercy,” the emotive new worship anthem from Salt Lake City-based collective The Rock Music, is now available. Produced by Sam Hart (Aaron Shust) and co-penned by Hart along with The Rock Music’s Steele Croswhite, Thomas Scribner and Caleb Yetton, “Mercy” proclaims the love, power, forgiveness and grace of “the Savior that sin never saw coming.”
Featuring vocals from The Rock Music’s veteran worship leaders Steele Croswhite, Kim Croswhite and Caleb Yetton, the song has been readily embraced by The Rock Church’s Salt Lake City-area congregation. An intimate and yearning response of worship, coupled with an unwavering confidence in the greatness of God—signature themes throughout the collective’s extensive discography of corporate worship offerings—“Mercy” stands poised to resonate with listeners everywhere.
“Over the years we have shared dozens and dozens of new songs with our congregation, and though each is special in its own way, we have come to recognize when a song uniquely connects with the church,” shares Steele Croswhite. “‘Mercy’ is definitely one of those songs. Exactly why it has spoken to our church so powerfully is only known by Jesus, but I sense that people see themselves reflected in the lyrics as receivers of God’s mercy.”
“At times we have all been burdened, broken or struggling in our faith,” he adds. “Each of us has been weary, felt condemned, or filled with worry. The church singing together that Jesus’ light ‘shatters the darkness,’ that His mercy ‘binds up the broken,’ and that our sin can’t compare to our Savior Jesus Christ, has been a wonderful encouragement for our entire congregational family.”
For two decades The Rock Music has been dedicated to writing, recording and performing Christ-centered music without compromise. The collective—helmed by singer/songwriter, worship leader and pastor Steele Croswhite—has released 13 full-length recordings and seven EPs. In addition, selections from The Rock Music are showcased on the DREAM Records releases God’s Not Dead: A Light In Darkness and Samson, compilations featuring songs from and inspired by the motion pictures.
The Rock Music is a ministry of The Rock Church, a suburban Salt Lake City congregation on a mission to share the Hope and grace of Christ in Utah—a state with among the fewest Bible-believing Christians in the country. Through outreach efforts in the community, including to those from Mormon/LDS backgrounds, the church seeks to work together, in unity, to reach the world for Jesus Christ.
Signing his first record deal at the age of 21, Steele Croswhite began his career as the lead vocalist, songwriter and guitarist for the acclaimed rock band Silvercrush. While the group earned Billboard chart success and toured with such artists as Sheryl Crow, Foo Fighters and Maroon 5, Croswhite’s life was falling apart. He drifted from his Christian upbringing, lured by the trappings of fame and reeling from his father’s untimely death. Encouraged by his sister to visit The Rock Church, it was there Croswhite experienced the true grace of Jesus Christ and rededicated his life to the Lord. Today, he serves as a pastor and worship leader at the church.
