Mercy Saw Me

Mercy Saw Me

The years had left scars
The scars had left pain
How could He recognize me?
I wasn't the same,
I knew I must pay
and I knew the price,
For justice and law
demanded my life,
But His tender heart
heard my desperate cry
and He saw my past
through merciful eyes,

Beautiful!
That's how Mercy saw me
Though I was broken and so lost
Mercy looked past all my faults

The justice of God
saw what I had done
But Mercy saw me through the Son
Not what I was but what I could be
That's how Mercy saw me.

Wherever you go,
you can't go too far
that His eyes of mercy
can't see where you are
He loves you too much
to leave you alone
You're flesh of His flesh
and bone of his bone
Yet His heart cries out
for your heart today
See yourself through His
and then you will say:

(Break sometimes omitted)
You'll say:
Sin has stolen my dignity
and all my self-esteem
but I've been made
brand new again
When Mercy looked at me!

Beautiful!
That's how Mercy saw me
Though I was broken and so lost
Mercy looked past all my faults
The justice of God
saw what I had done
But Mercy saw me through the Son
Not what I was but what I could be
That's how Mercy saw me.

Tag:
Not what I was but what I could be
That's how Mercy saw me.
Saw me!
