10. How Mercy Looks From Here

How Mercy Looks From Here
by Amy Grant



 

The water rose today
The river with the rain
Memories and picture frames
Have floated miles away
Through the wreckage and the mud
The ruins after the flood
She survived at 91
Some would have given up
Drowning in their tears
But on her wrinkled face
A smile appears
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 couldnít 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 wasnít 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
THATíS 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
The water rose today Ö

Written by Amy Grant and Eric Paslay

Behind the Song:
"This song was inspired by the life altering events of the first week of May 2010. Nashville experienced a record-breaking flood. We buried long time musician friend, Will Owsley. My cousin, Adam Spain, was killed by a roadside bomb in Afghanistan. We celebrated the marriage of our oldest daughter, Jenny Gill to Josh VanValkenburg. So much pain, so much joy, dancing side by side Ö as if life were meant to do so." - Amy Grant
