MERCY

The stars that fill the midnight sky
Or single grains of sand
Cannot compare to all God’s works
Too vast to understand

What number counts the drops of rain
That make the oceans wide
How many hours and days and years
Fill up eternal lives

How far the furthest star lies from
The meager grasp of man
How far across the universe
Doth God stretch forth his hand

What mercy fills the Father’s heart
That grants us time to grow
Too much for us to comprehend
Too much for us to know

…Jeff Bresee
