Capo 2

Intro: C

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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