Mercy Now

A friend turned me on to this song by Mary Gauthier.

It is called Mercy Now.

I thought you should hear it so I found a version on youtube. You can download or purchase the cd here.

It made me cry.


  1. Nice. nice to see Mary Gauthier at the Grand Ole Opry. Nice to see something other than God, Guns and Glory there, too.

  2. I saw Mary Gauthier play in Nashville at an Obama fundraiser. She is an amazing songwriter, but all of her songs are very depressing. She even jokes about it.

    Here's hoping she can write a happy song ...

  3. Here's hoping we all can write a happy song. I guess we write what is in our heart.
