The Mercy Tree - My Current Favorite Song

Hi Friends! Today I wanted to share a song with you. I've listened to it more times than I can count and each time it's such a blessing. The words are true and are what keeps me going day in and day out. 

________________________________________________________________________

On a hill called Calvary, stands an endless mercy tree
Every broken weary soul, find your rest and be made whole
Stripes of blood that stain it's frame, shed to wash away our shame
From the scars, pure love released; salvation by the mercy tree

In the sky, between two thieves, hung the blameless Prince of Peace
Bruised and battered, scarred and scorned, sacred head, pierced by our thorns
"It is finished" was His cry
The perfect Lamb was crucified
His sacrifice our victory; our Saviour chose the mercy tree

Hope went dark that violent day
The whole earth quaked at love's display
Three days silent in the ground, this body born for Heaven's crown
On that bright and glorious day, when Heaven opened up the grave
He's alive and risen indeed! Oh, praise Him for the mercy tree!

Death has died, love has won; hallelujah, hallelujah!
Jesus Christ has overcome; He has risen from the dead

One day soon we'll see His face; and every tear, He'll wipe away
No more pain or suffering; oh, praise Him for the mercy tree!


What's your favorite song right now? 
Don't worry - it's ok if it isn't a Christian one.

  6. I like this song! I've heard it before, and it's lovely. There are some really great country songs out right now that I love. But just give it a few weeks and I'll be sick of them cuz the radio likes to overplay all my favorites! haha. Oh well.
