''Mercy''

My subject is mercy I haven't much time And so I have chosen To speak in rhyme To bring forth a message so dear to me And that within it The truth you will see When I think of mercy In all of its scope I realize fully that This is my hope For nothing I have Can take care of me For mercy I plead For all time to be I did not deserve it I still do not But He gave me a record That has not one spot Oh it isn't mine I'm sure you'll agree But it is His record That he gave to me Now I've never been What I needed to be But still God's mercy Flows out to me And when I am gone From this earthly place I'll depend on his mercy I'll rest in His grace Yes I would seek mercy From my fellow man And I would show mercy Wherever I can But no mercy shown By you or by me Can hold a dim light To Calvary's tree Inspired by the obvious and one of our very talented Soup Poets-Thank you sir
