Fount of Faithful Mercy...


 Sometimes certain repetitions in life can seem a little monotonous!
...others, never! (like that first cup of coffee each morning)😄

and He never wearies or grows tired no matter how often we repeat ourselves to Him ...


The fount of faithful mercy fills yon vault and overflows
It sweeps from boundless deeps in an ocean of gold and rose
Where patient Goodness that employs man’s sorrow-joys once more
Does not grow weary but draws from love’s everlasting store

…as season unto season He delights expectant eyes
And startles fumbling reason with repetition’s surprise
Where oft we feel like strangers in life’s same yet changing place
While guzzling from a fountain rife with God's unchanging grace

…and drawing from His love often without much thought at all
To Who He gave to save us from the curse after The Fall
Still, Patient Goodness intercedes in spite of human flaw
On man’s helpless behalf He pleads with grace greater than law

…for law alone can never save us from the wrath to come
Where founts of faithful mercy spill to fill the heart with praise
For Patient Goodness that abides until the end of days

 Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. 
 For in Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit of life has set you free from the law of sin and death.
For what the law was powerless to do in that it was weakened by the flesh,
God did by sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful man, as an offering for sin. 
  He thus condemned sin in the flesh,
so that the righteous standard of the law might be fulfilled in us,
who do not walk according to the flesh but according to the Spirit. 
Romans 8:1-4
