Verse 2:
My Saviour's dying words expressed love pure and true:
'Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do.'
He interceded there, despite His agony,
And His prayer still pleads mercy over me.
Still pleads mercy, mercy, mercy,
His prayer still pleads mercy over me.

A                 G                D
  I thank You, Lord, that I don't get what I deserve.
A               G                 Bm7
  I thank You for Your awesome grace.
A               G              D
  Instead of judgement, the abundance of Your love.
G               E/G#        Asus4    A
  Goodness and mercy all my life.

      D
O, mercy....
