In the darkness, where everything is unknown
I faced the power of sin on my own
I did not know of a place I could go
Where I could find a way to heal my wounded soul

He said that I could come into His presence without fear
Into the holy place where His mercy hovers near
I'm running, I'm running, I'm running to the mercy seat
Where Jesus is calling, He said His grace would cover me
His blood will flow freely, It will provide the healing
I'm running to the mercy seat, I'm running to the mercy seat

Are you living where hope has not been
Lost in a curse of a lifetime of sin
Look, the illusions, they never come true
I know where there's a place of mercy for you

He said that you could come into His presence without fear
Into the holy place where His mercy hovers near
Come running, come running, come running to the mercy seat
Where Jesus is calling, His grace will be a covering
His blood will flow freely, It will provide the healing
Come running to the mercy seat

    I believe the mercy seat is when jesus calls you to come to him and he holds you in his arms and sits you upon his lap.

    Is nice, sweet, wonderful, marvelous, attractive. It means jesus used his blood to cleanse our sins as we the christains celebrate as good friday. Thank god for your loving kindness

    It means a girl was being tempted and she saw jesus and she run to him and sat on the mercy seat and she was saved.

    This song is so powerful and it brought people to the altar, our praise team sang this this morning, and the power of god came down over us. Not only that but let it rain too.
