Song Lyrics

He saw the ones around him move when he sat down
As the music softly played “Amazing Grace”
Last night’s fall off the wagon left bruises on his face
So when he felt a hand on his shoulder
He thought he’d hear “come back when you’re sober”
But a friendly voice said “We’re glad you’re here”

Welcome to the First Church of Mercy
Where the doors of love swing open wide
No matter who you are, no matter what you’ve done
You can come inside
Welcome to the alter of forgiveness
Where the fallen can fall and tears are wiped away
Welcome to the First Church of Mercy
Take a seat on the front row of grace

You don’t have to have it all together here
There’s a lot of us who’ve been right where you are
We all came in here hurting, broken bruised and scarred
But then the Father reached us with the healing hand of Jesus
Now we’re all a part of his family

Welcome to the First Church of Mercy
Where the doors of love swing open wide
No matter who you are, no matter what you’ve done
You can come inside
Welcome to the alter of forgiveness
Where the fallen can fall and tears are wiped away
Welcome to the First Church of Mercy
Take a seat on the front row of grace

We’re not here to judge you, you can find that anywhere
But we’re called to love you, you are welcome here

Welcome to the First Church of Mercy
Where the doors of love swing open wide
No matter who you are, no matter what you’ve done
You can come inside
Welcome to the alter of forgiveness
Where the fallen can fall and tears are wiped away
Welcome to the First Church of Mercy
Take a seat on the front row of grace

Welcome to the First Church of Mercy
