103

God is sheer mercy and grace

not easily angered, He’s rich in love

He doesn’t endlessly nag and scold

nor hold grudges forever

He doesn’t treat us as our sins deserve

nor pay us back in full for our wrongs

as high as heaven is over the earth

so strong is His love to those who revere Him

and as far as sunrise is from sunset

He has separated us from our sins

as parents feel for their children

God feels for those who love Him

He knows us inside and out

keeps in mind that we’re made of mud

men and women don’t live very long

like wildflowers they spring up and blossom

but a storm snuffs them out just as quickly

leaving nothing to show they were here

God’s love, though, is ever and always

eternally present to all who honor Him…
