1/14 Poem: Pure Mercy


Sometime we show Mercy from Fear
Because our own judgement is near

Sometimes we show Mercy from Pride
To boast we have nothing to hide

To those who receive it’s the same
As long as they stay in the game

But there’s a more excellent way
I long to show Mercy today

The Mercy that’s founded on Grace
Takes us to a whole different place

That Mercy beyond sympathy
Is what can form Christ out of me

Pure Mercy does more than erase
The consequences of our disgrace

It enters deep into the heart
To cleanse the place where sin did start

This Mercy that’s shown out of Love
Restores us our connection Above
