I ran away from love,
This lonely road I trod
Walking by myself
In the light of the love of God.

So come lay your mercy down on me,
We'll take a walk and reason, yeah.
Come lay your mercy down on me
Everything in its own due season
Come lay your mercy down on me, baby
Come lay your mercy down on me.

Though the flesh may get weak,
The heart don't get weary.
Are you gonna come and refresh me?

Come lay your mercy down on me,
When I'm old and gray.
Come lay your mercy down on me,
We'll give Jah the thanks and praise.

Oh, when I thirst,
You're there to fill my cup.
You give me strength to dance
In the light of the love of Jah.

So come lay your mercy down on me,
I said, I'm not a wealthy man
Come lay your mercy down on me,
I said I hope that you understand.
Come lay your mercy down on me.
You got to come lay your mercy down on me.

Mercy, oh.

Lay down, mercy, mercy, on me. {x5}
