Verse 1:
     F#m          D    A
On a hill called Calvary,
                F#m      D      A
There stands an endless mercy tree;
      F#m     D     A
Every broken weary soul,
           Esus4             A   Asus4   A
Find Your rest and be made whole.
           F#m         D         A
Stripes of blood that stain its frame,
         A/C#            D
Shed to wash away our shame;
          A          D      A
From the scars pure love released
          Esus4        A   Asus4  A
Salvation by the mercy tree.

Verse 2:
       F#m      D       A
In the sky between two thieves
         F#m         D        A
Hung the blameless Prince of Peace:
            F#m         D          A
Bruised and battered, scarred and scorned,
       Esus4        E       A   Asus4   A
Sacred head pierced by our thorns.
       F#m        D       A
'It is finished' was His cry,
            A/C#            D
The perfect Lamb was crucified;
          A        D    A
His sacrifice our victory,
           Esus4            A   Asus4  A
Our Savior chose the mercy tree.

Verse 3:
           F#m       D       A
Hope went  dark that violent day,
                F#m       D        A
The whole earth quaked at Love's display.
           F#m    D       A
Three days silent in the ground,
          Esus4              A   Asus4   A
This body born for heaven's crown.
              F#m         D       A
But on that  bright and glorious day
            A/C#            D
When heaven opened up the grave.
       A        D     A
He's alive and risen indeed,
               Esus4         A   Asus4  A
Oh, praise Him for the mercy tree. [Chorus]

Verse 4:
        F#m         D        A
One day soon we'll see His face
           F#m        D     A
And ev'ry tear He'll wipe away;
        F#m     D     A
No more pain or suffering,
               Esus4         A   Asus4   A
Oh, praise Him for the mercy tree. [Chorus]

Chorus:
          E              F#m        D           A
Death has died, love has won, hallelujah, hallelujah.
      E              F#m           D          E    A
Jesus Christ has overcome, He has risen from the dead. [Repeat]
