Verse 1
Mary watched You sleep,
Son of God and Son of Man,
Cradled by a love so deep,
fulfillment of Your Father’s plan.

Did she understand
that the child she adored
would one day reign in glory
and be crowned Lord of lords..
Lord of lords?
(chorus 1)


Chorus 1
Why choose to be Mercy’s Child?
What caused Your need to reconcile
my sinful soul to God?
Why leave Your royal throne,
to suffer and die alone?
Mercy’s Child.


Verse 2
They listened while You taught,
amazed by words so wise,
Drawn by their thirst for Truth
and compassion in Your eyes.

You must have known
how the crowd would turn on You
Yet You stayed…...
because You’re Mercy’s Child…
Mercy’s Child.

Chorus 1
Why choose to be Mercy’s Child?
What caused Your need to reconcile
my sinful soul to God?
Why leave Your royal throne,
to suffer and die alone?
Mercy’s Child.

Bridge
What sacred longing was met
as the nails tore through Your flesh,

and the angels grieved in silence
while You drew Your final breath?

What desire was given life
in Your triumph over death

As far as I can see,
only Love can be
the reason…


Chorus 2
for You to be Mercy’s Child;
to cause Your need to reconcile
my sinful soul to God;
to leave Your royal throne,
to suffer and die alone…
Mercy’s Child.
Mercy's Child.
Mercy's Child.
