Mercy Held Back The Bow
by Corey Emerson

Album: Sanctuary

Mercy Held Back The Bow
It caught me by surprise,
Calling to a darkness deep within.
I didn't try to fight,
Sure that somehow I'd control my sin;
I was lying to myself-
Guilty from the start,
Though You could have aimed an arrow
Straight at my rebellious heart.

Mercy held back the bow.
You looked beyond my wilful sin
To see the brokenness within,
Though I did not get what I deserved.
You took a higher road,
I can't escape the fact
That Mercy held back...the bow.

I offered You betrayal-
You offered me forgiveness in return.
You showered me with love,
When punishment was all I really earned.
With my sin out in the open,
I bowed my head in shame,
But I was pardoned by Your mighty hand
And I'm free in Jesus' name.

(repeat chorus)
