Running from mercy Submit Correct Lyrics

Oh sacred patience with my soul abide
There's a rainbow above me that the storm clouds hide
And kind words will never die 'cause the magic in kindness
Springs from the love, love, love

Little acts of kindness and little words of love
Make our earthly home heaven above
And there is no sorrow heaven cannot heal
Abide within, no cross, no crown

Running from mercy, hidden and coy
Swimming upstream down oceans of joy
Die in the arms of a natural life
Waking our happiness drowning in light
Waking our happiness drowning in light

Little acts of kindness, little words of love
Make our earthly home like heaven above
And there is no sorrow heaven cannot heal
Abide within, no cross, no crown

This thing was not born with wings
Slow to stop our ways sing

Running from mercy, hidden and coy
Swimming upstream down oceans of joy
Die in the arms of a natural life
Waking our happiness drowning in light
Waking our happiness drowning in light

Running from mercy, hidden and coy
Swimming upstream down oceans of joy
Die in the arms of a natural life
Waking our happiness drowning in light
Waking our happiness drowning in light

Running from mercy, hidden and coy
Swimming upstream down oceans of joy
Die in the arms of a natural life
Waking our happiness drowning in light
Waking our happiness drowning in light

You, you wake up, come on boy, come on
Don't you stop her, don't you stop her, there's that door
I've got that door I know where that door is
Just follow me and you wake up come on with me
Tomorrow
