Mercy On My Soul

I want mercy on my soul

I won’t forsake what I know

I wear no pity on my brow

I am broken but unbowed

 

(chorus)

Oh Lord I fear the worst

Were you misleading my love?

My word my only curse

For it’s bleeding my love

 

If she’s the fallen bride renewed

I am the Fisher King overboard

If she’s the mother in chains

Blessed and beautified

I’d be dressed like the Lord

 

Have mercy on my soul

I have forsaken all I know

I have faith in all I am

I am but a grain of sand

 

(repeat chorus)

Oh Lord I fear the worst

Were you misleading my love?

My word my only curse

For it’s bleeding my love
