Mercy Refused

But (and) Mercy refused and Love took my place
There on the cross where justice met grace
Mercy refused to let me die
Jesus the Lamb was crucified
Though rightfully death wanted me
Mercy refused

Justice demanded satisfaction
The law had been broken again and again
Judgment required immediate action
Death wanted payment for sin

Christ has become my righteousness
The Lord is my peace and my freedom from sin
Now I am clothed in His holiness
To a new life I entered in

As high as the heavens are over the earth
So great is His mercy to us
As far as the east is from the west
That's how far He's removed
Our transgressions from us
