Mercy


A powerful light shines in the dark.

When boys carry bombs in backpacks

Lord, have mercy.

When cancer empties inside out

Lord, have mercy.

When mothers give in

Lord, have mercy.

When death drives by

Lord, have mercy.

When foundations fail and floods come and evil is on the move

Lord, have mercy.

When it’s not just on television

Lord, have mercy.

When we are burdened and sorrow filled

Lord, have mercy.

When darkness falls

Lord, have mercy upon us and

Lord, send light.

  1. I love your heart and the way your spirit expresses itself… I can relate – my heart relates – I am a fellow sojourner who often feels and experiences the darkness that threatens to overtake, the sorrow and pain of the world – mine included. I constantly remind myself of the fact that I abide in Light itself and that darkness is conquered forever more – I don’t always feel it nor understand it but I do know it !!
