• Francesca Battistelli - Motion of Mercy Lyrics

    From the album Hundred More Years

    I was poor I was weak
    I was the definition of the spiritually
    Bankrupt condition
    So in need of help

    I was unsatisfied
    Hungry and thirsty
    When You rushed to my side
    So unworthy
    Still You gave yourself away...

    That's the motion of mercy
    Changing the way and the why we are
    That's the motion of mercy
    Moving my heart

    Now I'm filled by a love
    That calls me to action
    I was empty before now I'm drawn to compassion
    And to give myself away


    Living for the lost
    Loving ‘til it hurts
    No matter what the cost
    Like You loved me first
    That's the motion of mercy

    God give me strength to give something for nothing
    I wanna be a glimpse of the Kingdom that's coming soon
