Lacey Sturm – Mercy Tree (official music video) and lyrics

11.7.2013 — 8 Comments

I can’t stop listening to this brand new song from Lacey Sturm that was a part of the My Hope broadcast from Billy Graham. The lyrics are a POWERFUL reminder of the undeserved mercy available through Jesus Christ!

The track, “Mercy Tree” is available on the album, “My Hope: Songs Inspired By The Message And Mission Of Billy Graham” here on Amazon.

Lyrics:

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 sky between two thieves
Hung the blameless Prince of Peace
Bruised and battered, scarred and scorned
Sacred head pierced by our thorns

“It is finished” was His cry
The perfect Lamb was crucified
The Sacrifice our victory
Our Savior chose the mercy tree

Hope went dark that violent day
The whole earth quaked at Love’s display
Three days silent in the ground
This Body born for Heaven’s crown

But on that bright and glorious day
When Heaven opened up the grave
He’s alive and risen indeed
Oh praise Him for the mercy tree

Death has died Love has won
Hallelujah Hallelujah
Jesus Christ has overcome
He has risen from the dead

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
Oh praise Him for the mercy tree

Death has died Love has won
Hallelujah Hallelujah
Jesus Christ has overcome
He has risen from the dead

Death has died Love has won
Hallelujah Hallelujah
Jesus Christ has overcome
He has risen from the dead

On a hill called Calvary
Stands an endless mercy tree
