Lyrics

LORD HAVE MERCY

I walked into the blinding street
I saw children huddled on cold concrete
I saw empty faces and no relief
And I fell down to my knees

I left the crumbling towers behind
I crossed barren fields under a darkening sky
I heard tired voices and muffled cries
And I fell down to my knees

Oh Lord have mercy on me
Lord have mercy on me
Oh Lord have mercy on me

I walked down to the river’s edge
Stepped into the riverbed
I felt the cracked earth with my fingertips
And I fell down to my knees

Chorus

I saw one tree in the distance
I saw one tree in the distance
I saw one tree in the distance
And there I took my rest

Chorus

That night I dreamed of rain on my face
I heard laughter and music playing
And in the air the winds of change
I wept on my knees

Chorus
