The Mercy’s

The Mercy’s came from Medan in North Sumatra. The band was formed in 1969 and continued to be very successful into the mid 70’s. The members were: Erwin Harahap (lead guitar), Rinto Harahap (bass guitar), Rizal Arsyad (rhythm guitar), Reynold Panggabean (drums) and Alexander “Bun” (keyboards). Charles Hutagalung then replaced Alexander. Charles and Rinto wrote most of the songs for the band. Later, Albert Sumlang joined and added saxophone to the sound (Note: Albert passed away in 2009. He will be best remembered for the great Mercy’s hit song Kisah Seorang Pramuria which he composed, sang and played the saxophone on it. The 2000 reunion live version of the song is chosen to be featured here).

(KISAH SEORANG PRAMURIA)
Mengapa di dunia ini
Selalu menertawai
Hidupku yang hina ini
Berteman dengan seorang gadis
Mengapa semua manusia
Menghina kehidupannya
Mencari nafkah hidupnya
Sebagai seoang Pramuria
Semua itu tiadu arti bagiku
Ku anggap s’bagai penguji imanku
Kiranya Tuhan jadi saksi hidupku
Betapa sucinya jalinan cintaku
Walaupun hinaan ini
di tujukan pada diriku
Namun ku s’lalu tersenyum
Kar’na cintaku suci padanya
Semua itu tiada arti bagiku
Ku anggap s’bangai penguji imanku
Kiranya Tuhan jadi saksi hidupku, oh
Betapa sucinya jalinan cintaku
Walaupun hinaan ini
di tujukan pada diriku
Namun ku s’lalu tersenyum
Kar’na cintaku suci padanya
Namun ku s’lalu tersenyum
Kar’na cintaku suci padanya
