With Mercy Eyes

by Clinton Herring © 2018

There came that day when all seemed lost.
The Father’s pain, yes oh what cost!
The Son would die and give His life.
To end our sin and daily strife!

We didn’t know the truth on high.
We all fell short, we all must die!
Blind eyes see not the stain of sin
on everyone; not one came in.

Pure God though looked with mercy eyes
And saw our need, our pain, our cries.
So He gave hope, yes on that day,
And won for us that holy stay!

All love from God did cast our sin
From east to west - for us the win!
But each must choose His death for theirs
Or pay the price, sin’s wage - it tears!

So look to Him and bow your knee
Forgiveness sure, it’s yours so free!
For God is love, His mercy reigns.
Son’s cleaning blood removes our stains!

The Son, His work that breaks all lies.
That work by Him, for us He cries.
His payment sure, new life it buys.
Pure God does look with mercy eyes.
