Synonymous with mercy
I’m saying Your name more lately –
a name synonymous with mercy.
You advocate measures I dare not undertake.
Point in directions I dare not go.
I say Your name because
I have not yet become Your slave.
I’m a loose cannon; I hide and loiter
in the wilds beyond Your gate,
without the courage or strength to commit myself
to Your discipline and Your cause.
I say Your name, indulge in Your mercy and wait,
in fervent good faith, for my own timely, fragrant ripening.
O child of God, repeat His name devoutly.Mercy is what you are after.
