Mercy Reaches

Mercy reaches down
Nail-pierced hands
Touch this prodigal town

Its people drown in sin's tempestuous wake
Engaging evil when eternity's at stake
But God hears the cry deep inside the heart
For another way, for the sea to part

Mercy's hands extend
He longs to put the suffering to an end
A pounding on the doors of hearts is heard
Invite Christ in and victory is sure

Can Mercy change this wayward city?
Yes, if prayerful hearts beseech Thee
Lord of Lords
Yes, if willing feet will greet thee
Folks who mourn

Yes, if loving words be spoken
Then sin's cycle can be broken

Mercy reaches down with nail-pierced hands
Saviour save our sin-stained land
