Since God, So Rich in Mercy




PAD Challenge Day 4: write a 'since' poem

Since God so rich in mercy
Fills the night-sky with new dawn
We ought to trust His Providence
And humbly journey on

And since we are surrounded
With forefathers rich in faith
We ought not spurn the heritage
In which our hope is laid

And since we know that soon this life
Returns from dust to dust
We ought to consider the One
In Whom we ought to trust

And since God, rich in mercy (don't you just love that picture?)
Does not leave us to despair
We ought to fill our lips with praise
And our hearts with prayer

Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, Heb. 1:12

But God is so rich in mercy, and he loved us so very much, 5 that even while we were dead because of our sins, he gave us life when he raised Christ from the dead. (It is only by God's special favor that you have been saved!) Eph.2:4-5
