Intro:
A5   F♯m   D     A     F♯m   D     A
Verse 1:
     F♯m          D    A
On a hill called Calvary,
                F♯m      D      A
There stands an endless mercy tree;
      F♯m     D     A
Every broken weary soul,
           Esus4             A   Asus4   A
Find Your rest and be made whole.
           F♯m         D         A
Stripes of blood that stain its frame,
         A/C♯            D
Shed to wash away our shame;
          A          D      A
From the scars pure love released
          Esus4        A   Asus4  A
Salvation by the mercy tree.
Verse 2:
       F♯m      D       A
In the sky between two thieves
         F♯m         D        A
Hung the blameless Prince of Peace:
            F♯m         D          A
Bruised and battered, scarred and scorned,
       Esus4        E       A   Asus4   A
Sacred head pierced by our thorns.
       F♯m        D       A
'It is finished' was His cry,
            A/C♯            D
The perfect Lamb was crucified;
          A        D    A
His sacrifice our victory,
           Esus4            A   Asus4  A
Our Savior chose the mercy tree.
Verse 3:
           F♯m       D       A
Hope went  dark that violent day,
                F♯m       D        A
The whole earth quaked at Love's display.
           F♯m    D       A
Three days silent in the ground,
          Esus4              A   Asus4   A
This body born for heaven's crown.
              F♯m         D       A
But on that  bright and glorious day
            A/C♯            D
When heaven opened up the grave.
       A        D     A
He's alive and risen indeed,
               Esus4         A   Asus4  A
Oh, praise Him for the mercy tree. [Chorus]
Verse 4:
        F♯m         D        A
One day soon we'll see His face
           F♯m        D     A
And ev'ry tear He'll wipe away;
        F♯m     D     A
No more pain or suffering,
               Esus4         A   Asus4   A
Oh, praise Him for the mercy tree. [Chorus]
Chorus:
          E              F♯m        D           A
Death has died, love has won, hallelujah, hallelujah.
      E              F♯m           D          E    A
Jesus Christ has overcome, He has risen from the dead. [Repeat]
[2.]
    Asus4  A   Asus4   A
Coda:
      E              F♯m           D          E
Jesus Christ has overcome, He has risen from the dead.

  On a hill called Calvary, there stands an endless mercy tree.

On a hill called Calvary
There stands an endless mercy tree
Ev'ry broken weary soul
Find your rest and be made whole

Stripes of blood that stain its frame
Shed to wash away our shame
From the scars pure love released
Salvation by the mercy tree

In the sky between two thieves
Hung the blameless Prince of Peace
Bruised and battered scarred and scorned
Sacred head pierced by our thorns

It is finished was His cry
The perfect Lamb was crucified
His sacrifice our victory
Our Savior chose the mercy tree

Hope went dark that violent day
The whole earth quaked at Love's display
Three days silent in the ground
This body born for Heaven's crown

On that bright and glorious day
When Heaven opened up the grave
He's alive and risen indeed
Oh, praise Him for the mercy tree

Death has died, love has won
Hallelujah, hallelujah
Jesus Christ has overcome
He has risen from the dead

One day soon we'll see His face
Ev'ry tear He'll wipe away
No more pain or suffering
Praise Him for the mercy tree

On a hill called Calvary
Stands an endless mercy tree

Songwriter Personality Test

I have had many people ask me, “Do you ever get really frustrated in a co-write?” The answer is YES! Many times we want to co-write with our best buddies, and that makes sense. But, sometimes people that connect on a social level do not connect on a writing level. It’s completely different!  

It’s All in the Way You Word It

I’ve read the story of Esther many times. But this time, something different stood out to me; the way it was worded.   In the beginning of the story, there was a queen before Esther, named Queen Vashti.  Queen Vashti didn’t...
