arms of mercy

reconcile
i'm ready to stop running...
let myself be caught

stop pretending...
let myself be known

i'm ready to stop hiding...
let myself be found

held safe and sound in your loving arms


so hold me close
in your arms of mercy

look inside...
show me what you see

touch my life
and i will stop my searching

and find that place in you that waits for me


whatever i held onto,
i'm ready to let go

burn my bridges
and dance within the flames

all of my wrong choices
have led my heart back home

to the love that swallows up my pain


so hold me close
in your arms of mercy

look inside...
show me what you see

touch my life
and i will stop my searching

and find that place in you that waits for me


i can see you've been there all along
you've reached into my recklessness

and filled me with your song
