"THE MERCY GOD SHOWS"

Verse 1
Kings in their castles struggle with hasdles.
Rich men and poor men sing the same dirge.
Fed up and grumbling,
People are mumbling,
"Life on this Earth is a purge."

Chorus
If it weren't for the mercy God shows when we call,
Life would be left with no meaning at all.
If it weren't for the mercy God shows to us all,
We'd stumble in darkness, in weakness we'd fall.
If it weren't for the mercy God shows,
If it weren't for the love He bestows.

Verse 2
Children are crying, mothers are sighing.
Soldiers are dying, war is in style.
Shooting and shelling,
Looting, then selling,
Mankind is losing its smile.

Repeat Chorus

Bridge 1
Everlasting love, mercy, and grace,
Comfort in sorrow, when trials we face.
When faith is low, and hope is gone,
He gives us strength to carry on.

Repeat Chorus

Bridge 2
Pour out your heart, send up your prayers.
Pour out your tears. He always cares.
When faith is low, and hope is gone,
He gives us strength to carry on.

If it weren't for the mercy God shows,
And the love He bestows, where would we be?
