Morning splays its invitation
Mercy lays its daily feast
Like a lavish celebration
On the tables of the east
Morning spills a virgin freeway
To earth’s ills and hilly clime
Like a melody of mercy
To the fellow-mates of time
Newness overcomes the ages
Blueness blushes, gold and rose
Like a scepter filled with promise
Mercy wills hope for man’s woes
Morning wafts from lofts of heaven
Softly to earth’s hard-knock hurt
Like a present freely given
To peasant-princes of dirt

Ah, what a precious thought. No matter our status we are rich!
Our Father who is rich in mercy lavishes us with His love and grace.
But because of His great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ, even when we were dead in our trespasses. It is by grace you have been saved! And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with Him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus, in order that in the coming ages He might display the surpassing riches of His grace,
demonstrated by His kindness to us in Christ Jesus.
For it is by grace you have been saved through faith, and this not from yourselves; it is the gift of God, not by works, so that no one can boast. For we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance as our way of life.
