The Mercy Tree

I am going to make a slight change in my post schedule: instead of having my lyrics posts on Saturday, I am moving them to Friday and taking a day off on Saturdays.

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 its frame

Shed to wash away our shame

From the scars pure love released

Salvation by the mercy tree.

In the spot between two thieves

Hung the blameless Prince of Peace

Beaten, 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 Savior chose the mercy tree.

Hope went dark that violent day

The whole earth quakes at love’s display

There 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!

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

Praise him for the mercy tree!

These are the lyrics to “The Mercy Tree” by Lacey Sturm and Anthony Evans.  For Christians, this song is a wonderful reminder of what he did for us on that cross. For others, it is a clear message of salvation. “The Mercy Tree” was recommended to me by Stephen from A Fractured Faith Blog. He and his wife Fionnuala have an exceptional blog, and I encourage you to check it out!

Thanks for reading! Do you have any song recommendations for me? Comment below. God bless y’all, BBG
