Mercy's War

Jon Foreman

I was looking for excuses
And you offered me my soul
In the name of all my weakness
In the name of rock 'n roll


By his sickness I am healed
'Cause they broke you I am whole
Oh the wonderful blood of Jesus


I went looking for the fig leaves
And you asked me what they're for
I was building up a wall
And you offered me a door


I was hoping for silver spoons
But you handed me a sword
Oh the wonderful blood of Jesus


Maker is unmade
Love succumbs to hate
Life himself is slain
Is death the only way?
Is death the only way?


I went looking for religion
Absolutely not a friend
I went looking for ways out
And you showed me the way in


I went looking for a ghost
And instead I found a man
Oh the wonderful blood of Jesus


Felt like I was at the end
Felt like giving up on life
I talked about your mother
And denied you once or twice


Yeah I plucked out your beard
Put a sword into your side
Oh the wonderful of Jesus


Life and love are torn
By the blades of earthly swords
We cut the final cord
This is mercy's war
This is mercy's war


I was chasing after safety
When my world went up in flames
I watched all my defenses
Washed like ashes down the drain


I thought you were a stranger
But you called me out by name
Oh the wonderful blood of Jesus


Your wounds are gaping open
I couldn't recognize you at first
And all I had to offer you
Was an insult or a curse


Blood dripped down like poison
On the nauseated earth
Oh the wonderful blood of Jesus
Oh the wonderful blood of Jesus


This is mercy's war
This is mercy's war
Oh the wonderful blood of Jesus
