I hope this is the one your looking for..

Mercy Rewrote My Life

Verse: 1
For years I’ve traveled, the road all wrong,
oh my heart had lost it’s joy and song,
then grace placed me, right where I belonged,
when mercy rewrote my life.

Mercy, rewrote my life, mercy, rewrote my life
I could have fallen, but mercy rewrote my life.

Verse: 2
My mistakes, God turned into miracles,
all my tears he turned into joy, my past was forgiven,
my new name was written, when mercy rewrote my life.

Mike Murdock wrote this song, I believe, I heard him sing it on PTL years ago and could not remember the words but the tag line has stayed in my mind forever. I wish I could remember the tune for the verses. Anyone know where I could hear the melody?

I just saw on Facebook that Jimmy Swaggart recorded it on his Album, I Surrender All.

Great Song and message!

Am who i am today because of his mercy. i have done many mistakes in my life repeatedly, but the mercy of God cover it all. That's why i can say "Thanks to the Lord because he is wealthy to be praised." I was a sinner but now am child of God, i was lost but now am found, because of his love

This song is touching. In those days a song writer had to be anointed before
A song like this could be written. Thank God for His mercy.

Mercy rewrote my life
Mercy rewrote my life
I could have fallen my soul cast down
But mercy rewrote my life

For years I traveled a road all wrong
My heart had lost its joy and its song
Till grace placed me right where I belong
When mercy rewrote my life

Mercy rewrote my life
Mercy rewrote my life
I could have fallen my soul cast down
But mercy rewrote my life

(key change)
My mistakes God turned into miracles
And all of my tears He turned into Joy
Then my past was forgiven and my new name it was written
When mercy rewrote my life

Last night at church, the preacher whose mother wrote this song gave his testimony.  It was powerful.  You can go to inlandlighthouse.com and search media for Sunday, Oct. 2, 2011. At the end of his message, he tells of his mother writing this song, then he sings it.  Really powerful.

Jimmy Swaggart did make a recording of this.and it is good.... but there is a singer at his church named B.J. Vavassuer. I heard her sing this and it was the most powerful thing I ever heard ..if you can find her singing it.. you can feel the power of God coming through the television......

This song blessed me the very first time I heard it. If it was not for Your mercy my Lord, I would be just like the rose trampled by passerbyers. I have a new life, I have a new name, I am a new creation because of Your Mercy....Thanks Ps Jimmy Swaggart for this wonderful song.

God bless

Thank God for His grace and mercy! Without his mercy, there would be no me. I was feeling distraught and tornup, when I heard this song, sung by J. Swaggert and it blessed my soul. Praise God, hallelujah, for mercy rewrite my life.t
