Vicki Yohe – Mercy Seat lyrics

In the darkness
Where everything is unknown
I face 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 runnin' I'm runnin'
I'm runnin' to the mercy seat
Where Jesus is callin' he said
His grace would cover me
His blood will flow freely
It will provide the healin'
Come runnin' to the mercy seat
I'm runnin; to the mercy seat.

Are you livin' where hope has not been?
You're lost in the curse of a
Lifetime of sin
Lovely 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 this holy place
Where his presence hovers near.

Come runnin' come runnin'
Come runnin' to the mercy seat
Where Jesus is callin' he said his
Grace would cover you. His blood
Will flow freely it will provide the healin'
Come runnin' to the mercy seat
I'm runnin' to the mercy seat
He said that you could come into his presence
Without fear into the holy place
Where his mercy hovers near

    I love this song, vicki came to the solid rock church and bought her adopted son from solid rock and I play this song when I need answers from jesus, when I need to feel close to him it gives me the peace and encouragement I need when I was so sick, the words are s powerful and it does just exactly what it says it will do. When you caom eseeking jesus he is there to be found and he will heal our wounded soul and break off the bondage that sets you free when you choose him and not teh world there is power in the lyrics it grabs your heart and soul!

    This son has a lot of meaning for me. I listen to this song daily. This song has such a powerful meaning. I just love this song so much. When I need a lift up out of the mucky clay I just put this song on and I am lifted up. I love to sing this song out loud. I don't often need a lift just to listen to this song. I am so glad that this song was recorded by Vicki. She is so anointed and her voice is amazing. I love the fact that God gave her such an amazing voice to sing. I love a lot of her songs but this one by far is my favorite. God has some amazing talented people out there in this world. I just want to say God bless and keep coming up with more amazing songs by Ms. Vicki.
