Mirror of Mercy



Foolish hearts must be broken to break our chains
Broken  hearts can be healed when set fee
Broken chains fall away and the heart still remains
The wounding drives us to our knees

And though this sounds foolish  it remains true
For the folly of God intercedes
For all of our reasons we’ve rationalized
And the wisdom of this world  misleads

Chorus: In the mirror of mercy we shall clearly see
The way that God created our life to be
If we walk in the light we can learn to obey
The mirror of mercy shows us the way.

The worst thing you can do is to follow your heart
For our motives we cannot perceive
And what we desire most can tear us apart
If our heart has been deceived.

Our feelings are false and purveyors of lies
Feelings follow if facts take the lead
If on Truth we will focus we will become wise
For to reckon reality is our great need.

Bridge: We are not left here to wander  in doubt
God gives is His Word to help figure things out
A mirror of mercy God’s law to reveal
If will show us the truth not the things that we feel
For the merciful mirror makes the Truth dearer
For reality’s image it shows
In this merciful mirror, truth becomes clearer
Than ever before we could know

In the mirror of mercy we shall clearly see
The way that God created our life to be
If we walk in the light we can learn to obey
The mirror of mercy shows us the way
The mirror of mercy shows us the way
The mirror of mercy shows us the way.
