I was poor I was weak
I was the definition of the spiritually
Bankrupt condition
So in need of help

I was unsatisfied
Hungry and thirsty
When You rushed to my side
So unworthy
Still You gave yourself, away

That's the motion of mercy
Changing the way and the why we are
That's the motion of mercy
Moving my heart

Now I'm filled by a love
That calls me to action
I was empty before now I'm drawn to compassion
And to give myself, away

That's the motion of mercy
Changing the way and the why we are
That's the motion of mercy
Moving my heart

Living for the lost
Loving 'til it hurts
No matter what the cost
Like You loved me first
That's the motion of mercy

God give me strength 
To give something for nothing
I wanna be a glimpse of 
The Kingdom that's coming soon

That's the motion of mercy
Changing the way and the why we are
That's the motion of mercy
Moving my heart

Living for the lost
Loving 'til it hurts
No matter what the cost
Like You loved me first
That's the motion of mercy
Moving my heart

Oh to give yourself away
To give it all away
That's the motion of mercy
