Mystery of Mercy

I am the woman at the well, I am the harlot
I am the scattered seed that fell along the path
I am the son that ran away
And I am the bitter son that stayed.

My God, my God, why hast Thou accepted me?
When all my love was vinegar to a thirsty King.
My God, my God why hast thou accepted me
It's a mystery of mercy and the song, the song I sing.

I am the angry man who came to stone the lover
I am the woman there ashamed before the crowd
I am the leper that gave thanks
But I am the nine that never came

You made the seed that made the tree
that made the cross that saved me
You gave me hope when there was none
you gave me only your Son

(Lyrics by Caedmon's Call. How amazing is God's love to us fickle mankind!)

It is a really nice tune. Slow with orchestra in the background. I tried to find a website where you can listen to the whole song, but I came up empty-handed. The best I can offer you is to suggest that you go to Amazon and listen to the sound bite. It is the second verse that plays, so you don't get to hear the chorus.
