This is a near parody of the Alice Cooper song: Poison

Your home on high
Your throne divine
You left it all
Came down to die

I hate my sin, but I just can’t stop
(Can’t stop)
I wanna bow down , and my conscience tells me it’s right
I wanna live right, and I want it so much
(So much)
I wanna love You, for Your death is infinite mercy
Your mercy breaking all these chains
Your Mercy
I don’t wanna stay the same

Your sac-rifice
Your blood, my life
One drop can heal
Your pain, I’m free

I hear You calling, and You promise new life
(New life)
I wanna follow ‘cause I hear You calling my name
I wanna follow and live under Your will
(Your will)
I wanna know You and Your heart of infinite mercy
Your mercy breaking all these chains
Your Mercy
I don’t wanna stay the same, mercy

One drop
(One drop)
Can heal
(Can heal)
Your death, I’m free

I want Your freedom; so come clean up my heart
(My heart)
I wanna praise You, and I never want it to stop
I want Your Spirit and I want it so much
(So much)
I wanna hold on to Your heart of infinite mercy
Your mercy cleansing all my sins
Your mercy
I want You to break these chains, mercy
(Mercy)

I want Your freedom; so come clean up my heart
(My heart)
I wanna praise You, and I never want it to stop
I want Your Spirit and I want it so much
(So much)
I wanna hold on to Your heart of infinite mercy
Your mercy cleansing all my sins
Your mercy
I want You to break these chains, mercy

Cleansing deep inside my soul, mercy
(Mercy)
Thank You that You break these chains
(Thank You)
(Thank You)
Thank You that You break these chains
