Amanda Cook - Mercy Lyrics

My past embraced
My sin forgiven
I’m blameless in Your sight
My history rewritten

Cause You delight in showing mercy
And mercy triumphs over judgement

Oh Love, great Love
Fear cannot be found in You
And there will never be a day
You’re uncertain of the ones you choose

So I will awake
And spend my days
Loving the One who has raised me up
From death to life
From wrong to right
You’re making all things beautiful

    Can’t quite get my head around why anyone could press thumbs down for this song 🤔

  5. Khulekile Khoza

    Amen to our Father the king and ruler of all❤️👏😇😄

  6. Walker Bonwell

    This song has given me new insight. I can see that I am being raised by Father God likened to when I was raising my boys. I’m still growing & learning. All the way till God calls me home!

  7. Darren Chan

    Mercy doesn't triumph over judgment as the song suggests That's not the character of God. He's both - merciful and of holy judgment. That's why we need a Savior, Jesus Christ, who took the JUDGMENT FOR US, so that we could HAVE MERCY. The Cross is the intersection of mercy AND judgment; grace AND wrath. Not one over the other.

    I'm blameless in your sight
    My history rewritten
    'Cause you delight in showing mercy
    And mercy triumphs over judgment
    You delight in showing mercy
    And mercy triumphs over judgment
    Oh, love great love
    Fear cannot be found in you
    And there will never be a day
    You're uncertain of the ones you choose
    'Cause you delight in showing mercy
    And mercy triumphs over judgment
    You know you delight in showing mercy
    And mercy triumphs judgment
    So I will awake and spend my days
    Loving the one who has raised me up

    You're making all things beautiful
    So I will awake and spend my days
    Loving the one who has raised me up
    From death to life, from wrong to right
    You're making all things beautiful
    So I will awake and spend my days
    Loving the one who has raised me up
    From death to life, from wrong to right
    You're making all things beautiful
    So I will awake and spend my days
    Loving the one who has raised me up
    From death to life, from wrong to right
    You're making all things beautiful
    And you delight in showing mercy
    And mercy triumphs over judgment
    And delight in showing mercy
    And mercy triumphs judgment

  26. Ben Harris-Hayes

    Hi all.

    Just discovering Amanda's music...and I'm happy that the live version of this song was the first version I heard.
    It blew me away.

    I'm not Christian (and not that it matters either way), but I have always felt that one can love a song and it's message because it moves you and makes you feel something...and also simply because despite everything, LOVE is prevailing message here, no matter what you believe.

    This is a beautiful song.

    The live version is even more incredible (in my humble opinion), if you've not seen/heard it.

    All the best, everyone.

  27. Ashley Castleberry

    This song is not true. Mercy does not triumph over judgement. Mercy is a result of a judgment. God is the source of both, so one cannot triumph over another. There will always be judgement by God, and it’s eternal. Read your bibles, folks. It’s a pretty song, but it’s not written on truth. I saw a reference to James 2:13, but that’s talking about how we treat one another. The song speaks about God, not us. And there is judgement on all who are not in Christ Jesus.

  28. Michael Chihoko

    what a powerful song ......

  29. Cyber Alphacon

    this song is awesome!

  30. Ana Beatriz


    Meu passado abraçado
    Meu pecado perdoado
    Eu sou irrepreensível em Tua visão.
    Minha história reescrita

    Tens prazer em mostrar misericórdia
    E a misericórdia triunfa sobre o julgamento

    Oh, amor, grande amor
    O medo não pode ser encontrada em Ti
    E nunca haverá um dia
    Que tenhas incerteza daqueles que escolheste

    Então eu vou acordar
    E gastar meus dias
    Amando Àquele que me levantou
    Da morte para a vida
    De erro para o acerto
    Estás fazendo tudo lindo

  31. Noah Clemons

    Sing of the mercy that surpasses all.... Yes yes yes yes

  35. Sara Filler

    Mercy triumphs over judgment. Thank God for his grace and mercy he pours out on us every second we are on this earth.

  36. Darya Hupp

    Christmas used to be illegal in America because Jeremiah 10 says not to do it. "They cut down the tree from the forest and decorate it with gold and silver." It was pagan then and it's still pagan now. We were first founded as a Christian nation. 1 John 3:4 says that sin is lawlessness so we need to keep His Sabbath holy on Saturday too, Mark 16:1. Celebrate the holidays that Jesus celebrated (Passover, Feast of Unleavened Bread, Firstfruits, Pentecost, Feast of Trumpets, Day of Atonement, and Feast of Tabernacles, John 7:2, Acts 2, Acts 20, 1 Cor. 5:7-8, and Lev. 23) instead of the pagan ones of the world like Easter and Christmas. Google it, they are all pagan. You'd would go to jail for celebrating Christmas in the early eighteen hundreds. Easter is the goddess of fertility. Jesus doesn't want to be worshipped like a pagan god. Luke 16:17 says that it's easier for Heaven and Earth to pass away than for one tittle of the law to fail. John 14:15 says that if you love Him, you'll obey His Commands. He teaches us how to love. His love is a lot like loyalty. Try it out. Love, always. God bless you and yours. Amen.

  37. Darya Hupp

    He promises BLESSINGS for those who know that 1 John 3:4 "Sin is LAWLESSNESS." Matthew 5, His law was NEVER done away with. Matthew 7, those who are LAWLESS will be separated from Him. Mark 16:17, It's EASIER for Heaven and Earth to pass away than for one little bit of His law to fail. Jeremiah 31, THE NEW COVENANT is that He writes His law on your mind and in on your heart, Ezekiel 36:27, His Holy Spirit teaches you His laws and makes you walk in them. The book of Rev. says it three times, you need to obey His commands to get into Heaven, Rev. 12:17, 14:12, and 22:14. Hebrews 10, Those who reject Moses's law DIE WITHOUT MERCY on the testimony of two or three witnesses, 1 Cor. 7:19, Circumcision is nothing and uncircumcision is nothing but what matters is OBEYING THE COMMANDS OF GOD.

  38. 2cutesbabygal

    im so lonely there is no words to describe it

    Angela Fecteau

    2cutesbabygal praying for you today to be filled with the peace that comes from knowing Jesus Christ as Lord! Praying for grace and mercy, praying that you know how precious you are and how loved! You are not alone!


    This sounds like the spirit of loneliness in whom you wrote.
    Because of the self-pity.

    You can pray to God to give you people to your side and repent of the sins which could have caused a judgement.

    "Who is a God like you, who pardons sin and forgives the transgression of the remnant of his inheritance? You do not stay angry forever but delight to show mercy." - Micah 7:18

    "....because judgment without mercy will be shown to anyone who has not been merciful. Mercy triumphs over judgment." - James 2:18

  49. Laney LeBlanc

    Mercy triumphs over judgment

  50. Andrew Walshe

    The quality of mercy is not strained; It droppeth as the gentle rain from heaven Upon the place beneath. It is twice blest; It blesseth him that gives and him that takes: 'T is mightiest in the mightiest; it becomes The throned monarch better than his crown: His sceptre shows the force of temporal power, The attribute to awe and majesty, Wherein doth sit the dread and fear of kings; But mercy is above this sceptred sway; It is enthronèd in the hearts of kings, It is an attribute to God himself; And earthly power doth then show likest God's When mercy seasons justice. Therefore, Jew, Though justice be thy plea, consider this, That, in the course of justice, none of us Should see salvation: we do pray for mercy; And that same prayer doth teach us all to render The deeds of mercy.

  51. Doreen Quelch

    Giving a thumbs down on this song could never and will never take away the power and beauty contained in this song! This sound originated from Heaven - I feel it every time I hear and sing it to One Who has raised me up.

  58. Savedthroughfaith praisegod

    This is a great song but I have to say that we do NOT "embrace our past", we learn from it and move closer to the Lord. Our past is only good for seeing what we were without Christ, it is not to be embraced.

    Estiee Udo

    But embracing your past helps you grow. Helps you realize that who you used to be is not who you are now.

  59. Inez Jimenez

    "There will never be a day you're uncertain of the ones you choose"......Ugh I FALL APART EVERYTIME when she sings those lyrics!!! This song in its entirety is just simply AMAZING!

  62. bi Veronica

    so so beautiful and soothing. May God´s blessings be.

  63. Lucy Mae

    This song has freed me in unspeakable ways

  64. fleurma76

    I grew up in churches that were very legalistic. I couldn't really understand the "mercy" side of my faith. I could only focus on my failures. God gave me someone in my life that helped me understand we really are forgiven. "Go and sin no more." "My past rewritten." I found a better understanding of God's grace and love and this song reminds me ^_^

  65. Tim P

    Amen!! Lord Jesus....still watching in 2017!

  66. Ishmael

    when I hear this song I think of two people playing a card game about mercy is victorious over judgment

  67. Living On Purpose

    Peaceful assurance 😊

    My heart so touched on this worship song ! Jesus made a lot of encounter of sinner in the bible and one of them a woman who is a prostitute and Jesus showed mercy and not judgement or condemantion he forgive her and told her to sin no more. God rewrite the story of the life of that woman, indeed God delight in showing mercy over judgement. What an amazing God we have !
