Intro: C

Verse 1:
            C
I was looking for excuses
                G                          G#
And you offered me my soul
             A
In the name of all my weakness
             D
In the name of rock 'n roll
             E7
By His sickness I am healed
                        Fm
‘Cause they broke you I am whole
E7            Fm                            G C
Oh, the wonderful blood of Jesus

Verse 2:
              C
I went looking for the fig leaves
                G                                       G#
And you asked me what they're for
            A
I was building up a wall
                D
And you offered me a door
            E7
I was hoping for silver spoons
                Fm
But you handed me a sword
E7            Fm                            G C
Oh, the wonderful blood of Jesus

Chorus 1:
   D                  A
Maker is unmade
 E7                             F
Love succumbs to hate
 G                          C
Life Himself is slain
                       E7
Is death the only way?
                       E7
Is death the only way?

Verse 3:
              C
I went looking for religion
          G                     G#
Absolutely not a friend
              A*
I went looking for ways out
                    D
And you showed me the way in
              E7
I went looking for a ghost
              Fm
And instead I found a man
E7            Fm                            G C
Oh, the wonderful blood of Jesus

Verse 4:
              C
Felt like I was at the end
                G                    G#
Felt like giving up on life
    A*
I talked about your mother
              D*
And denied you once or twice
          E7
Yeah, I plucked out your beard
              Fm
Put a sword into your side
E7             Fm                G C
Oh, the wonderful of Jesus

Chorus 2:
 D                            A
Life and love are torn
               E7                            Fm
By the blades of earthly swords
        G                    C
We cut the final cord
                E7
This is mercy's war
          E7
It's mercy's war

Verse 5:
              C
I was chasing after safety
                    G                            G#
When my world went up in flames
    A
I saw my defenses
                     D
Washed my ashes down the drain
                     E7
I thought mercy was a stranger
                Fm
But You called me out by name
E7             Fm                           G D
Oh, the wonderful blood of Jesus

Verse 6:
           C
Your wounds were gaping open
                 G                            G#
Couldn't recognize you at first
        A*
And all I had to offer you
             D*
Was an insult or a curse
             E7
Your blood dripped down like poison 
               Fm
On the nauseated earth
E7             Fm                           G C
Oh, the wonderful blood of Jesus
E7             Fm                           G C
Oh, the wonderful blood of Jesus

Outro:
                E7                              Fm
This is mercy's war, this is mercy's war
                E7                              Fm
This is mercy's war, this is mercy's war
                E7                              Fm
This is mercy's war, this is mercy's war
E7            Fm                            G C
Oh, the wonderful blood of Jesus
