Mercy Gate (3:57)

by Jason Silver


Lyrics

Stand and plead your case before them
Let the hills hear what you're saying
Hear, O Mountains, God is speaking,
Speaking to the earth.
The Lord has brought a case against us
He is charging all of Israel
Saying, "What have I done to you?
"Come and answer me."

You have brought us out of Egypt
Redeemed us from the land of slavery
On the journey we have seen your hand.

You want so much more
More than just a sacrifice
To reach out to the poor
Justice in our time
I must stop passing by
The hungry eyes you send my way
Everyday
Mercy is a choice I make,
Help me be a mercy gate

What shall I bring to you Lord?
How shall I bow down before you?
Shall I come with sacrifices, giving you my best?
God has show me what is good
And I can say I know what he wants
What he wants is acting justly, loving mercy, walking humbly too.

Hear god calling to the city
Heed the rod, the one who made it
Or you'll bear the scorn of nations

You want so much more
More than just a sacrifice
To reach out to the poor
Justice in our time
I must stop passing by
The hungry eyes you send my way
Everyday
Mercy is a choice I make,
Help me be a mercy gate

You've forgiven me for some much
Cancelled all the debt I owed you
I couldn't make a single payment, and you just let it go!
And I should go and do the same thing,
Forgiving all the sins against me
Spreading love and giving mercy,
Justice to the poor

You have brought us out of Egypt
Redeemed us from the land of slavery
On the journey we have seen your hand.

We want to give you more
More than just a sacrifice
To reach out to the poor
Justice in our time
We must stop passing by
The hungry eyes you send our way
Everyday
Mercy is a choice we make,

We want to give you more
More than just a sacrifice
To reach out to the poor
Justice in our time
We must stop passing by
The hungry eyes you send our way
Everyday
Mercy is a choice we make,
Help us be a mercy gate.

Mercy is a choice I make,
Help me be a mercy gate.
