The Inn of Mercy

  Draw near, my weary traveler
it's here, you'll find your rest;
Here in the Inn of Mercy
we offer tenderness.
Life's road, my weary traveler
has led you here to see
a fire burns the brightest where
you find good company.
Take off your well-worn traveling shoes;
lay down your cares and woes.
Take off your hat, remove your coat;
you won't be needing those.

Sit down, my weary traveler
the road's been long and steep.
Here in the Inn of Mercy
you'll find a cozy suite.
And food, my weary traveler
the best for miles around.
Miles, that wander many paths
o'er rough and rocky ground.
Lay down your well-worn traveling blues,
lay down your thoughts of foes.
Lay down your grief, cast off your wiles,
you won't be needing those.

Here in the Inn of Mercy,
we've walked those roads before.
We understand just how you feel
and keep an open door...
