  Jesus, the Lamb of God was crucified for us.
D             Gm/D     D        G                 E7/G♯
  The ransom there was paid, to set the sinner free,

and His blood   still cries mercy over me.

His blood  still cries mercy  over me.
G/A              D    D/F♯    G       Em7
   Still cries mercy, mercy,  mercy,
    D/F♯   G           D/A    A    D
His blood  still cries mercy  over me.

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....          

SEEMS LIKE SO LONG AGO, upon a rugged cross,
Jesus, the Lamb of God was crucified for us.
The ransom there was paid, to set the sinner
free,
And His blood still cries mercy over me.

Still cries mercy, mercy, mercy.
His blood still cries mercy over me.
(x2)

My Savior'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.

I thank You, Lord,
That I don't get what I deserve.
I thank You for Your awesome grace.
Instead of judgement,
The abundance of Your love.
Goodness and mercy all my days.
