Easter at Perkinsville

Mercy Tree

On a hill called Calvary

Stands an endless mercy tree

Ev'ry broken weary soul

Find your rest and be made whole

 

Stripes of blood that stain its frame

Shed to wash away our shame

From the scars pure love released

Salvation by the mercy tree

 

In the sky between two thieves

Hung the blameless Prince of Peace

Bruised and battered scarred and scorned

Sacred head pierced by our thorns

 

It is finished was His cry

The perfect Lamb was crucified

His sacrifice our victory

Our Savior chose the mercy tree

 

Hope went dark that violent day

The whole earth quaked at Love's display

Three days silent in the ground

This body born for Heaven's crown

 

On that bright and glorious day

when heaven opened up the grave

He’s alive and risen indeed

Oh praise Him for the mercy tree

 

Death has died love has won

Hallelujah hallelujah

Jesus Christ has overcome

He has risen from the dead

 

Death has died love has won

Hallelujah hallelujah

Jesus Christ has overcome

He has risen from the dead

 

One day soon we'll see His face

Ev'ry tear He'll wipe away

No more pain or suffering

Praise Him for the mercy tree

 

Death has died love has won

Hallelujah hallelujah

Jesus Christ has overcome

He has risen from the dead

 

Death has died love has won

Hallelujah hallelujah

Jesus Christ has overcome

He has risen from the dead

  

On a hill called Calvary

Stands an endless mercy tree

Resurrecting

The head that once was 

crowned with thorns

Is crowned with glory now

The Savior knelt to wash our feet

Now at his feet we bow

 

The one who wore our sin and shame

Now robed in majesty

The radiance of perfect love

Now shines for all to see

 

Your name, Your name

Is victory

All praise will rise

To Christ our king

 

Your name, Your name

Is victory

All praise will rise

The fear that held us now gives way

To him who is our peace

His final breath upon the cross

Is now alive in me

 

Your name, Your name

Is victory

All praise will rise

To Christ our king

 

Your name, Your name

The tomb where soldiers watched in vain

Was borrowed for three days

His body there would not remain

Our God has robbed the grave

Our God has robbed the grave

The Power of the Cross

Oh to see the dawn of the darkest day

Christ on the road to Calvary

Tried by sinful men torn and beaten then

Nailed to a cross of wood

 

Oh to see the pain written on Your face

Bearing the awesome weight of sin

Ev'ry bitter thought ev'ry evil deed

Crowning Your bloodstained brow

 

This the pow'r of the cross

Christ became sin for us

Took the blame bore the wrath

We stand forgiven at the cross


 

Now the daylight flees 

Now the ground beneath

Quakes as its Maker bows His head

Curtain torn in two, Dead are raised to life

Finished the vict'ry cry

 

This the pow'r of the cross

Christ became sin for us

Took the blame bore the wrath

We stand forgiven at the cross

 

Oh to see my name written in the wounds.

For through Your suff'ring I am free

Death is crushed to death, Life is mine to live

Won through Your selfless love

 

This the pow'r of the cross

Son of God slain for us

What a love what a cost

We stand forgiven at the cross

Living Hope

How great the chasm that lay between us

How high the mountain I could not climb

In desperation I turned to heaven

And spoke Your name into the night

 

Then through the darkness

Your loving-kindness

Tore through the shadows of my soul

The work is finished the end is written

Jesus Christ my living hope

 

Who could imagine so great a mercy

What heart could fathom 

such boundless grace

The God of ages stepped down from glory

To wear my sin and bear my shame

 

The cross has spoken I am forgiven

The King of kings calls me His own

Beautiful Savior I’m Yours forever

Jesus Christ my living hope

 

Hallelujah praise the One who set me free

Hallelujah death has lost its grip on me

You have broken every chain

There’s salvation in Your name

Jesus Christ my living hope

 

Then came the morning

that sealed the promise

Your buried body began to breathe

Out of the silence the Roaring Lion

Declared the grave has no claim on me

Jesus Yours is the victory
 

Hallelujah praise the One who set me free

Hallelujah death has lost its grip on me

You have broken every chain

There’s salvation in Your name

Jesus Christ my living hope 

 

Jesus Christ my living hope

Oh God You are my living hope
