Mercy          By John Flynn

Although it was in despair it
Longed for peace and so your spirit
Laid your anger down to stay free
From your prison you forgave me

Trapped within a heart that hated
I too was incarcerated
By scars someone else inflicted
Never could I have predicted

Mercy would saved my life ‘cause
Mercy showed me when I was
Thirsty for condemnation
Mercy was my salvation
Mercy pride could not ask for
Mercy’s redemption cried your
Worthy to be blessed with this
Mercy and sweet forgiveness

So much had been taken from me
Fear and rage I felt help numb me
To wounds even I could not see
To my very humanity
You reached but I doubted when you
Told them you forgave me then you
Met me and I realized
That I saw within your eyes

Mercy saved my life because
Mercy taught me when I was
Thirsty for retribution
Mercy was my solution
Mercy he did not ask for
Mercy’s redemption cried your
Worthy to be blessed with this
Mercy and sweet forgiveness

Mercy can heal the soul
Mercy can make you whole
Mercy can ease your pain
Mercy can break the chains
Mercy can give but it takes
Mercy for all our mistakes
Forgive us our trespasses
Raise us up from these ashes

Lashing out with hells own fury
I had been your judge and jury
Enraged every time you pleaded
Innocent though you proceeded
To prove though you felt forsaken
In those years that I had taken
From this wrong would come some justice
And now you’ve taught me to trust this

Mercy saved my life because
Mercy showed me when I was
Thirsty for bitter vengeance
Mercy’d commute my sentence
Mercy I could not ask for
Mercy’s redemption cried your
Worthy to be blessed with this
Mercy and sweet forgiveness
