Mercy Saw Me
by T.D. Jakes



The years had left scars, the scars had left pain.
How could He recognize me? I wasn't the same.
I knew I should pay and I knew the price,
but justice and law demanded my life.
His tender heart heard my desperate cry
and He saw my past through merciful eyes.

Beautiful! That's how Mercy saw me.
Though I was broken and so lost,
but Mercy looked past all my faults.
The justice of God saw what I had done,
but Mercy saw me through the Son.
Not what I was but what I should be,
that's how Mercy saw me.

Whereever you go, you can't go too far
that His eyes of Mercy can't see where you are.
Yes He loves you too much to leave you alone.
No He won't leave you alone.
Yes, you're flesh of His flesh yes you are, yes you are
and you're bone of His bone.
Yet His heart cries out for your heart today.
See yourself through His eyes and then you can say:
Sin had stolen my dignity and all my self esteem,
but I was made brand new again
when Mercy looked past me.

Beautiful! That's how Mercy saw me.
Though I was broken and so lost not too long ago,
but Mercy looked past all my faults.
The justice of God saw what I had done,
but Mercy saw me through the Son.
Not what I was, but what I could be that's how Mercy saw me.
For not what I was, but what I could be, that's how Jesus saw me.
