Mercy Is A Song

  • Mercy is a song, singing to my heart
    Telling me it's okay, come just as you are
    I never heard a melody, like the one they're singing over me
    And I just wanna sing along, 'cause mercy is a song

    Freedom is a choir, swaying back and forth
    Shining in the shadow of a stain-glassed Sunday morning
    Shouting hallelujah, yesterday is gone
    Oh, freedom is a choir and mercy is a song

    Singing oh, there is a life for every soul
    No matter where you've been just come on home
    Let all God's children sing along
    Hallelujah, chains are gone
    Mercy is a song

    Guilty is a lie, spoken by a fear
    Saying after what you've done, you don't deserve to be free
    But I can look him in the eye, and say this time you're wrong
    'Cause guilty is a lie, oh, but mercy is a song

    Singing oh, there is a life for every soul
    No matter where you've been just come on home
    Let all God's children sing along
    Hallelujah, chains are gone
    Mercy is a song

    A song of the redeemed
    I want to set free
    A glimpse of what waits for you and me

    Heaven is a mansion, a promise in the sky
    That one day we will be singing with those angels up on high
    That old familiar melody, like we've known it all along
    Oh, heaven is a mansion and mercy is a song
    Heaven is a mansion and mercy is a song
    Oh, tell me, can you hear it?

    Singing oh, there is a life for every soul
    (There is a life for every soul)
    No matter where you've been just come along
    (No matter where you've been, where you've been)
    Let all God's children sing along (sing along)
    Hallelujah, chains are gone
    Let all God's children sing along (sing along)
    Hallelujah, chains are gone

    Mercy is a song (oh)
    Mercy is a song (oh)
    Mercy is a song (oh) Writer/s: Matthew West, Jordan Feliz, AJ Pruis
