"Mercy Tree" by Lacey Sturm, as seen in the film "The Cross" featuring Billy Graham. This song is everything that contemporary Christian worship music should be theologically profound, deep lyrics.

Intro: Em  C  G (2x)

Verse 1
      Em          C      G
On a hill called Calvary
          Em       C     G
Stands an endless mercy tree
       Em       C     G
Every broken weary soul
            D                G
Find your rest and be made whole
             Em                   G
Stripes of blood that stain its frame
         Bm             C
Shed to wash away our shame
          Em         C       G
From the scars pure love released
           D            G
Salvation by the mercy tree

Verse 2
        Em      C         G
In the spot between two thieves
           Em         C      G
Hung the blameless Prince of Peace
          Em          C          G
Beaten, battered, scarred, and scorned
        D                    G
Sacred head pierced by our thorns
         Em             G
It is finished was his cry
             Bm          C
The perfect lamb was crucified
          Em        C   G
His sacrifice, our victory
             D              G
Our Savior chose the mercy tree

Verse 3
           Em         C      G
Hope went dark that violent day
                  Em         C      G
The whole earth quaked at love's display
             Em     C      G
Three days silent in the ground
      D                       G    
This body born for heaven's crown
          Em                 G
On that bright and glorious day
              Bm            C
When heaven opened up the grave
       Em        C     G
He's alive and risen indeed!
            D              G
Praise him for the mercy tree!

            D            Em
Death has died, love has won
     C           D
Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
        D             Em
Jesus Christ has overcome
         C        D     G
He has risen from the dead

Verse 4
         Em          C        G
One day soon, we'll see his face
          Em           C     G
And every tear, he'll wipe away
         Em        C   G
No more pain or suffering
           D              G
Praise him for the mercy tree

(Chorus 2x)

      Em          C   G
On a hill called Calvary
           Em       C    G
Stands an endless mercy tree
