“Mercy is a Song”

Listen here.

Music and lyrics by Matthew West

Performed by Chris & Rachel Piemonte

Mercy is a song, singing to my heart,
Telling me it’s ok, come just as you are,
I never heard a melody, like the one that’s 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 ohhhhh, there is a light 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 thief,
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 ohhhhh, there is a light 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.

The song of the redeemed,
The ones 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 ohhhhh, there is a light for every soul,
(There is a light for every soul)
No matter where you’ve been just come on home,
(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 (ohhh)
Mercy is a song (ohhh)
Mercy is a song (ohhh)
