lyrics

Mercy Point
written by Beth McKee ©SwampgirlMusic

Where is my Sweet Sary I've searched everywhere
She didn't call me out of bed she never combed my hair
Not out in the kitchen or down by the chicken coop
Last night she tucked me in singing sweet and low
Songs of chariots to carry her
She sang about a train "Everybody get on board
Look up in the sky, follow the drinking gourd!"

We will gather up, down at Mercy Point
We will walk on the water
Sister Moses promises there’ll be tribulation
But our faith will carry us to Canaan

Dreamed I was a butterfly riding a wagon wheel
Then I was a blackbird flying out across the field
I saw Sary in the dark walking on the river bend |
She said “I’m headed out to Jerusalem."
Headed to Jerusalem

I'll miss my Sweet Sary, wish she'd taken me
Without her I'm an orphan, she's my family tree
But I will sing her songs, they are my reminder
To carry on until I'm grown, then I'll go and find her.

We will gather up, down at Mercy Point
We will walk on the water
Sister Moses promises there’ll be tribulation
But our faith will carry us to Ca - naan
