Mercy's War
by Jon Foreman

Album: The Wonderlands - Darkness & Dawn
by 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 and roll
By sickness I am healed
Because they broke you I am whole
O 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
When you handed me a sword
O 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
O 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
Yah I plucked out your beard
Put a sword into your side
O the wonderful blood of Jesus

Life and love are atoned
By the blades of all our swords
We cut the final cord
But 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
O the wonderful blood of Jesus

Your wounds were gaping open
I couldn't recognize you at first
All I had to offer
Was an insult or a curse
The blood dripped down like poison
On the nauseated earth
O the wonderful blood of Jesus

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