Amy Grant’s How Mercy Looks from Here // Music on a Monday

Because Rainy Days & Mondays and especially¬†this particular Monday could really use a good song…

The water rose today,

The river with the rain

Memories and picture frames

Are floating miles away.

Through the wreckage and the mud,

The ruins after the flood,

She survived at 91, hmm

 

Some would have given up

Drowning in their tears

But on her wrinkled face

A smile appeared.

 

When you face your greatest fear

Losing all that you hold near

Open up your eyes my dear,

Oh how mercy looks from here.

 

The call I couldn’t take,

Unbearable mistakes

A brilliant mind that fades away

A baby doll beside the grave

 

When you face your greatest fear

Losing all that you hold near

Open up your eyes my dear

Oh how mercy looks from here.

 

I would have given up, drowning in my tears

If it wasn’t for your voice all these years

 

When you face your greatest fear

Losing all that you hold near

Open up your eyes my dear

My dear

 

That’s when boundless grace appears

Unseen angels hover near

Saints are singing loud and clear

Oh how mercy looks from here.

Oh how mercy looks from here.

 

Oh how mercy looks from here.

Oh how mercy looks from here.

 

The water rose today…

I think Tara had Jovan listen to this the other and what a perfect song for our situation.¬† So, for Jovan, but for us all for all we have held dear and lost anyway…
