Mercy Knew No Bounds

Mercy knew no bounds as it came down

To unwind the wounds and shame of yesterday.

Mercy knew no limits of hope

When life was restored as it displayed its power

Through the life of one who holds all power.

Mercy came down at the perfect hour

And showered his love

Through all he gave

When he chose to remain

Amongst so much hate.

Mercy loved and loves through all

That reeks of sin and pride

Yet hides from perfect love

When shown as most sincere

Even in the midst of hate filled jeers.

Mercy so perfect, so true

That few can see and feel

The liberty it can bring

For all who feel their stings

In all life’s vicious cycles

Once thought to be so precious

Now left undone and worthless.

Mercy knew you when life

Became too great

And threatened to break

All that you had to fake.

Mercy waited to hear your voice

Though none was ever heard

And now deserted and lonely

Mercy still stands to offer you

His love that is perfect and true.

Psalm 86:15 (Amplified Translation) But You, O Lord, are a God merciful and gracious, slow to anger and abounding in mercy and loving-kindness and truth.

Lamentations 3:22-23 (Amplified Translation) It is because of the Lord’s mercy and loving-kindness that we are not consumed, because His [tender] compassion's fail not. They are new every morning; great and abundant is Your stability and faithfulness.
