MERCY SAW ME


 

(1 Peter 1:3)

Verse 1:

C/D Am7

The years had left scars,

C/D D G2

The scars had left pain,

Em7 Am7

How could He recognize me,

C/D G2 D/G C/G

I wasn’t the same;

G Em7 Am7 C/D

I knew I should pay

D/C Bm7 ——–

And I knew the price,

Em7 Am7 —-

For justice and law

Am/G F —– Am7

Demanded my life.

D/F# B/D# Em CM9

But His tender heart

Em CM9

Heard my desp’rate cry,

Em G2/A

And He saw my past

A7 FM9 Am7/D D

Through merciful eyes

Chorus:

G Am7—-

Beautiful,

G/B C2 ——

That’s how mercy saw me,

Am7 C/D D

Though I was broken

C/D D G/B

And so lost,

Am7 D/F# C/G G

Mercy looked past all my faults;

G/B C

The justice of God saw

Bsus B

What I had done,

Em Em(+7) Em7

But mercy saw me

Am7(b5)

Through the Son,

G/D

Not what I was,

Em A7 A9 Am7/D

But what I could be,

D C/D D G

That’s how mercy saw me

Verse 2:

C/D Am7

Wherever you’ve gone,

C/D G2

You can’t go too far

Em7 Am7

That His eyes of mercy

C/D D G2

Can’t see where you are;

D/G C/G G Em7 Am7 C/D

He loves you too much

D/C Bm7 ———

To leave you alone,

Em7 Am7

You’re flesh of His flesh

Am/G F —– Am7

And bone of His bone

D/F# B/D# Em CM9

And His heart cries out

Em CM9

For your heart today,

Em G2/A

See yourself through His eyes

A7 FM9 Am7/D D And then you can say

Bridge:

Em Bm/D G2/B

Sin had stolen my dignity

Am7 D/F# G Gsus G

And all my self esteem;

D/F# Em Em/D Em/D A2/C#

But I was made brand new again,

CM7 FM9 C/D D

When mercy looked at me

(Repeat Chorus)

G/D

Not what I was,

Em A7 A9 Am7/D

But what I could be,

D C/D D G

That’s how Jesus saw me
