Of Circumstance and Mercy-Grants...

 His Mercy Is More


I will tell of the LORD's unfailing love. 
I will praise the LORD for all he has done. 
I will rejoice in his great goodness to Israel, 
which he has granted according to his mercy and love.

Life could overload love with care 
And drain us of the strength to bear 
What circumstance and mercy grants 
To test the purpose of the prayer 

Life could rob us of happiness 
That only joy and peace possess 
Where only trust in Mercy’s Must 
Achieves its holy hopefulness 

Life could distract us from the goal 
With that which wraps around the Soul 
When we forget Mercy’s paid debt 
and the Yet, after Time’s brief toll 

Life could trick us into despair 
When lies, disguised as loving care 
Are calloused to Mercy’s kind Who 
Delivers us from evil’s snare 

Life could feel like a futile chase 
The future too fearful to face 
Without belief in Mercy’s Chief 
The One True God of love and grace 

Life would do all of this without
One greater than the weight of doubt
He broke sin's chains through Mercy's pains
To prove the love life is about

So life is more than load of care
That would drain us of strength to bear
What circumstance and Mercy grants
Through perfect Love beyond compare
