Mercy Now


My father could use a little mercy now The fruits of his labor fall and rot slowly on the ground His work is almost over it won’t be long, he won’t be around I love my father, he could use some mercy now

My brother could use a little mercy now He’s a stranger to freedom, he’s shackled to his fear and his doubt The pain that he lives in it’s almost more than living will allow I love my brother, he could use some mercy now

My church and my country could use a little mercy now As they sink into a poisoned pit it’s going to take forever to climb out They carry the weight of the faithful who follow them down I love my church and country, they could use some mercy now Every living thing could use a little mercy now

Only the hand of grace can end the race towards another mushroom cloud People in power, they’ll do anything to keep their crown I love life and life itself could use some mercy now Yeah, we all could use a little mercy now

I know we don’t deserve it but we need it anyhow We hang in the balance dangle ‘tween hell and hallowed ground And every single one of us could use some mercy now Every single one of us could use some mercy now Every single one of us could use some mercy now
