Lyrics

Have mercy on me

Written By: Daniel Thornton

I’ve lived in darkness all these years
I’ve never seen the things I fear
I just can’t do another year
Son of David have mercy on me

I’ve lived without more than my sight
I’ve got not hope and little fight
There must be dawn to this dark night
Son of David have mercy on me

Son of David have mercy on me
I am blind but I’m desperate to see
I’ve been told there’s no way
But I won’t go away
Son of David have mercy on me

I’ve heard this Jesus healed the lame
Maybe for me, he’d do the same
Forever free me of this shame
Son of David have mercy on me

I heard him walking just near by
Would He help? I had to try
I screamed my plea, my prayer, my cry
Son of David have mercy on me

Son of David have mercy on me
I am blind but I’m desperate to see
I’ve been told there’s no way
But I won’t go away
Son of David have mercy on me

He said, “What do you want?”
I said, “I want to see!”
He touched my eyes
And now I see, I can see

The Son of David have mercy on me
I was blind but Lord now I can see
I was told there’s no way
But now I can say
The Son of David had mercy
I can see He had mercy
Jesus had mercy on ME

The Moment U

Written By: Daniel Thornton

The moment you called my name,
everything in my life changed.
I couldn't resist your love,
that paid such a price.

You had everything I was ever looking for
and then you gave,
and you gave some more.
The moment you called my name

The moment you called my name,
fear and doubt all ran away.
for the first time in my whole life,
I understood free and clean

You had everything I was ever looking for
and then you gave,
and you gave some more.
The moment you called my name

Speak Lord, for your servant is listening.
Speak Lord, for your servant is here.
Speak Lord, for your servant is listening.
Speak Lord to me.

The moment you called my name,
other voices became still.
A passion deep in my heart
rose to follow you forever

You had everything I was ever looking for
and then you gave,
and you gave some more.
The moment you called my name

Beyond Words

Written By: Daniel Thornton

Again, I'm standing here before You
And then, time seems to stand still
Somehow, heavens doors are open
And now, Your glory fills this place

Jesus, beyond words
Jesus, beyond words
Your beauty, Your holiness
Your majesty and grace
Jesus, beyond words

I can't explain
This richest of gifts
This love unfailing
This life of lifes
