Cece Winans – Mercy Said No lyrics

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)

    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!

    This song means to me that jesus is the only one that can demand de devil to stay away from ous souls. Because of the cross of th christ jesus we are free and that we don't have to beafraid to die. That his mercy said us free.

    , this song to me means or shows me how god loves us. He sent his one and only son to die for our sins, we should of been the ones to pay, but the father sent his one and only son to die so that we can be forgiven and so that we will all have a chance at eternal life. This song is a blessing to me. #Inspired. God is love xx mercy said no highly recomended amen xx.

    There is always a battle for our soul the devil's purpose is to gain it so that we as redeemed children of god do not receive the glorious promise of god. Satan is the author of depression, sadness, self loathing/low self esteem all these things lead to suicide. God has suffered for us already to such an extent that no suffering that we experience surpasses the sacrifice of god. His mercy is everlasting and god is always there for us, even in our darkest hour when we are at our lowest.

    The meaning of this song to me is that it shows how much God loves us and don't want us to fall into the devil's hand. But with his love 2000 years ago that he didn't give up on us but willing to give up his wealthness, his Riches, but to come down to the lowest form of the earth as to be a human a sinful cloth as a being. But for his mercy that he say no to the devil but victory is his that he overcome the world and he conqured the grave and praise him for his victorious that we may have oppotunity to enjoy an eternal life with him in the following life.
    I'm so glad jesus set me free. Singing glory halelluiah shout the victory! Amen!.
