Lyrics

Water for the thirsty
The hungry are fed
Clothe the naked
Bury the dead
Harbour the stranger
Visit those in need
Minister to the prisoner
There is no greater deed

Seven acts of mercy
Six are not enough
Seven ways to show you care for everyone you love
Seven times as stronger
Every second of the day
But if there's one thing to remember
Show some mercy everyday

Can you give to a taker?
Can you take what you give?
Can you love someone who hates you?
And forget and forgive?
Charity's outdated
Replaced by lust and greed
Break out the tides are sailing
We always take more than we need

If there's one thing to remember
Show me some mercy everyday!

Writer(s): Jools Holland, Sam Brown
