This Is What Mercy Does
by Karen Peck, New River

Album: Reach Out
by Karen Peck, New River


They can still see the tears in the father's eyes
When he turned and he walked out the door!
He can still hear the wound in a trembling voice
Saying son, please don't go!
But he wanted more!
He longed for bright eyes, to make his mark, to leave his own life.

He never planned all the time it will fall apart
But the world can change in a day
He never planned that his heart will wanna go back home
And he wondered why his father would say
But tears felled his eyes, when he found arms opened wide.

Chorus:
This is what mercy does
This is how a Father loves
He offers what is in his heart!
This is how forgiveness feels
This is how redemption heals
And the past is left behind because
This is what mercy does!

I felt the weight of the world in my soul
I confess, that I was just like him, oh, oh
But I felt the weight of my father's arms
As he covered the shame of my every sin
And I'm still amazed that he gives me his grace!

Chorus: (x2)
This is what mercy does
This is how a Father loves
He offers what is in his heart!
This is how forgiveness feels
This is how redemption heals
And the past is left behind because
This is what mercy does!
