Intro: A5 F#m D A F#m D A 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] [2.] Asus4 A Asus4 A Coda: E F#m D E Jesus Christ has overcome, He has risen from the dead. F#m D A E/G# F#m D E x2 A A5 On a hill called Calvary, there stands an endless mercy tree.
