MERCY CAME RUNNING

Dan Dean, Dave Clark, & Don Koch

Once there was a holy place,
Evidence of God's embrace,
And I can almost see Mercy's face
Pressed against the veil.
Looking down with longing eyes,
Mercy must have realized
That once His blood was sacrificed,
Freedom would prevail.
As the sky grew dark,
And the earth began to shake
With justice no longer in the way,

Mercy came running
Like a prisoner set free
Past all my failures
To the point of my need.
When the sin that I carried
Was all I could see,
And when I could not reach Mercy,
Mercy came running to me.

Once there was a broken heart,
Way too human from the start
And all the years left it torn apart,
Hopeless and afraid.
Walls I never meant to build
Left this prisoner unfulfilled.
Freedom called, but even still,
It seemed so far away.
I was bound by the chains
From the wages of my sin.
Just when I felt like giving in,

Mercy came running
Like a prisoner set free
Past all my failures
To the point of my need.
When the sin that I carried
Was all I could see,
And when I could not reach Mercy,
Mercy came running to me.

Sometimes I still feel so far,
So far from where I really should be.
He gently calls to my heart,
Just to remind me.

Mercy came running
Like a prisoner set free
Past all my failures
To the point of my need.
When the sin that I carried
Was all I could see,
And when I could not reach Mercy,
Mercy came running to me.
