I was just a child, when I felt the Savior leading
I was drawn to what I could not understand
And for the cause of Christ, I have spent my days believing
That what He'd have me be, is who I am

As I've come to see the weaker side of me
I realize His grace is what I'll need
When sin demanded justice for my soul

Mercy said no
I'm not gonna let you go
I'm not gonna let you slip away
You don't have to be afraid
Mercy said no
Sin will never take control
Life and death stood face to face
Darkness tried to steal my heart away
Thank You Jesus, Mercy said no

For God so loved the world, that He sent His son to save us
From the cross He built a bridge to set us free
Oh, but deep within our hearts, there is still a war that rages
And makes a sacrifice so hard to see

As midnight fell on the crucifixion day
The light of hope seemed oh so far away
As evil tried to stop redemption's flow

(Repeat Chorus)

And now when heaven looks at me
It's through the blood of Jesus
Reminding me of one day long ago

(Repeat Chorus)

    The song inspires me the lyrics is good and god used the song to tell me that his death on the cross paid the price of my sin and he will not let me suffer mercy say

    Kingsley okulolo. To me, mercy said no means: through the had and bad time of our lives god has always be there for us. Even when we are falling he there to lift us up.

    As i turn back the oages of memory i recall many instances when i hit the lowest valley's in my life and would have headed staright for destruction( spiritually )... I owe my life to the one true god, christ, whose mercy had always been there, is there and will always be for me... Taking control of my life even when i think it's not there anymore... Love the wordings for this song,it's a special one!
