Mercy On Me

My body now worn and riddled with pain

FATHER have mercy on me, LORD have mercy on me

Your hand on my life even before my first breath

FATHER of my life, LORD of the wholeness of my life

My life entirely in Your hands

I do not question why my suffering

FATHER Your healing hands on me, LORD Your healing hands on me

My faith and trust in You always

FATHER the author of my being, LORD Your grace upon me

No blame, my life is in You

Your Grace keeps me from long lonely nights

FATHER Your presence comforts me, LORD Your peace in me

Loneliness will never defeat me

FATHER of everlasting love, LORD Your sacrifice in love

Humbled, I surrender to You

Though my breathing becomes harder

FATHER Your breath in me, Lord Your life in me

My eyes become dim, and life escapes me

FATHER, the giver of life, LORD, the healer of my being

Your healing in me, now and forever
