Verse 1:
I was poor, I was weak.
I was the definition
of spiritually.
Bankrupt condition.
So in need of help.

I was unsatisfied.
Hungry and thirsty.
When You rushed to my side,
so unworthy.
Still You gave Yourself away. . .

Chorus:
That's the motion of mercy.
Changing the way and the why we are.
That's the motion of mercy.
Moving my heart.

Verse 2:
Now I'm filled by a love.
That calls me to action.
I was empty before, now I'm drawn to compassion.
And to give myself away. . .

Chorus:
That's the motion of mercy.
Changing the way and the why we are.
That's the motion of mercy.
Moving my heart.

Bridge:
Living for the lost.
Loving 'til it hurts.
No matter what the cost,
like You loved me first.
That's the motion of mercy.
Ohhh.

God, give me strength to give something
for nothing.
I wanna be a glimpse of the Kingdom,
that's coming soon.

Chorus:
That's the motion of mercy.
Changing the way and the why we are.
That's the motion of mercy.
Moving my heart.

Living for the lost.
Loving 'til it hurts.
No matter what the cost,
like You loved me first.
That's the motion of mercy.
Moving my heart.

Outro:
Ohhh,
To give Yourself away . . .
To give it all away . . .
That's the motion of mercy.
