Synonymous with mercy

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.
