Where Mercies Rest

A song written in a hard season of life.
 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

VERSE 1

Skin, broken by time
This aching heart of mine
Brittle bones, wrecked by darkness
                    Where mercies rest
Lungs, choked with dust
Nerves, shot with rust
Tired eyes, flooded with darkness
              This is where mercies rest

CHORUS
Come and rest in His mercies
As mercies rest upon you
Hear the lullaby of surrender
From the One who is true
From the One who loves you

VERSE 2
Columns, cracked and ancient
In this old house of mine
Sinning saints racked by darkness
                    Where mercies rest
Families torn asunder
Flocks, frightened by thunder
Freed slaves hiding in darkness
              This is where mercies rest

CHORUS
Come and rest in His mercies
As mercies rest upon you
Hear the lullaby of surrender
From the One who is true
From the God who loves you

BRIDGE
(Men) As darkness grows
(Women) Come rest, come rest
As nights grow cold
Mercies come rest
When you’re too tired to try
Come rest, come rest
Where kings and queens lie
Is where mercies rest

CHORUS
Come and rest in His mercies
As mercies rest upon you
Hear the lullaby of surrender
From the God who is true
From the God who loves you
