Mercy Is Song Lyrics


Mercy is as mercy does
Wandering the wild
The stars arise watching you
A breath upon a cloud
Two white doves
Two white wings
To carry you away
To a land in memory
A land in memory
The sky is high
The earth is green
And cool below your feet
So swiftly now beneath the bow
Your father waits for thee
To wrap you in his healing hands
As the night sky weeps
Two white doves
Two white wings
To carry you away
For mercy is the healing wind
That whispers as you sleep
That whispers you to sleep
