Mercy, Lord have mercy. Mercy, Lord have mercy on us all
Evening sun shines on the fields below Covers all in gentle light
Can we forgive and start all over now Wrong is wrong and right is right
Can we learn to love each other
Let compassion find the way
If god alone should stand in justice
Cant he stop this madness, keep us safe ’til we come

Churches burning in the southern night Shadows of a shameful past
The light of progress will be shining bright And reason will prevail at last.
When we believe that we are brothers
Our blood is red, our hearts beat strong Compassion is the only answer
Love is always right and hate is always wrong Yes, we will leave our troubles here below Heavenbound we go.
Mercy, Lord have mercy
Mercy, Lord have mercy on us all.
