Mercy for the ones who've strayed; mercy as they go their way
Mercy as their anger grows against the God they used to know.

Mercy - means their broken dreams, crumbling lives and empty screams.
Mercy means their hearts are torn from all in life; they live by scorn.

Cry, and beg, for those who strayed; barbed wire and glass now strew their way.
Know it gets much worse; sin grows, and leeches life from those it knows.

Pray for truth to stir their dreams, for God to answer all their screams,
Him to cover what is torn with the blood they used to scorn.

King of Kings, we ask, we plead, bring back the ones who mercy need,
Yes, our road is strewn with grief, but at the end, our end is sweet.
