Verse 2
 
In the day between two thieves
 
Hung the blameless Prince of Peace
 
Bruised and battered, carred and scorned
 
Sacred head pieced by our thorns
 
"It is finished" was His cry
 
The perfect Lamb was crucified
 
His sacrifice our victory
 
Our Savior chose the mercy tree
 
Verse 3
 
Hope went dark that violent day
 
The whole earth quaked at Love's display
 
Three days silent in the ground
 
This body born for Heaven's crown
 
On that bright and glorious day
 
When Heaven opened up the grave
 
He's alive and risen indeed
 
Oh, praise Him for the mercy tree

Verse 4
 
One day soon we'll see His face
 
Every tear, He'll wipe away
 
No more pain or suffering
 
Praise Him for the mercy tree
