The Father's Mercy

by Clinton Herring © 2018

There is a place where mercy reigns.
I know! - It's from my Father's throne.
From God, creator of all good things.
For mercy starts with Him alone!

The spirit in us should know His ways,
He breathed in us His glorious life!
How is it that we stumble so,
and fight and rant and live in strife?

The heart became a darkened place,
And lost the sight of love for sure.
But He with mercy eyes did look,
And sent His Son to be our cure!

Son took for us the wrath of God
So mercy would pour forth on us.
One stood in place of all, ‘twas He!
Great God, the Son, His mercy thus!

So God does look with mercy eyes,
His love as riches now cast on me.
For from the throne does mercy rain!
The work on High that sets me FREE!

Ephesians 3:18-19 ...(so that you may) grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge "that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.
