Lyrics

Mercy Said No was nominated for Song of the Year by the Dove Awards in 1999.

Read Dave Clark's article about writing Mercy Said No with Greg Long and Don Koch.

I was just a child when I felt the Savior leading
I was drawn to what I could not understand
And for the cause of Christ
I have spent my days believing
That what He'd have me be is who I am

As I've come see the weaker side of me
I've realized his grace is what I need
When sin demanded justice for my soul

Mercy said no
I'm not gonna let you go
I'm not gonna let you slip away
You don't have to be afraid
Mercy said no
Sin will never take control
Life and death stood face to face
Darkness tried to steal my heart away
Thank you Jesus
Mercy said no

For God so loved the world that He sent His Son to save us
From the cross He built a bridge to set us free
Oh, but deep within our hearts
There is still a war that rages
And makes the sacrifice so hard to see

As midnight fell on crucifixion day
The light of hope seemed oh so far away
And as evil tried to stop redemption's flow

Mercy said no
I'm not gonna let you go
I'm not gonna let you slip away
You don't have to be afraid
Mercy said no
Sin will never take control
Life and death stood face to face
Darkness tried to steal my heart away
Thank you Jesus
Mercy said no

And now when Heaven looks at me
It's through the blood of Jesus
Reminding me of one day long ago

Mercy said no
I'm not gonna let you go
I'm not gonna let you slip away
You don't have to be afraid
Mercy said no
Sin will never take control
Life and death stood face to face
Darkness tried to steal my heart away
Thank you Jesus
Mercy said no
