'Mercy tree' door Lacey Sturm

Een tijd terug hoorde ik voor het eerst van Lacey Sturm via een video met daarin ook nog Billy Graham en Lecrae.
Nu even teruggezocht. De tekst van het lied is een goede voorbereiding op het goede nieuws dat overal nog sterker klinkt in de periode van Pasen: 'death has died and love has won, hallelujah! Jesus Christ has overcome'.

Mercy Tree - door Lacey Sturm

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

Verse 2
In the spot between two thieves
Hung the blameless Prince of Peace
Beaten, battered, scarred, and scorned
Sacred head pierced by our thorns
It is finished was his cry
The perfect lamb was crucified
His sacrifice, our victory
Our Savior chose the mercy tree

Verse 3
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
On that bright and glorious day
When heaven opened up the grave
He's alive and risen indeed!
Praise him for the mercy tree!

Death has died, love has won
Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
Jesus Christ has overcome
He has risen from the dead

Verse 4
One day soon, we'll see his face
And every tear, he'll wipe away
No more pain or suffering
Praise him for the mercy tree

(Chorus 2x)
On a hill called Calvary
Stands an endless mercy tree
