Have mercy upon me, O God, according to thy lovingkindness: according unto
the multitude of thy tender mercies blot out my transgressions.
Psalm 51:1 KJV
In all my woe I ran to Man
Hoping for successful plan
“Show me options, and a way,
To fix my broken life today.”
But nothing could they do or say,
To end my pain and sad dismay.
In fact, their offers came to me,
With strings attached – nothing for free!
“Fix us! Fix us!” their deeds cried out.
“We, too, are bound by fears and doubt!”
“Dear God,” I cried. “What can I do?”
Man’s help is useless, only You…
Can bring the mercy that I need.
“Where do I go?” is what I plead.
Do for me what no man can,
Deliver by Your awesome hand!
THE CROSS, my child, is where to go…
That is where “free mercy” flows;
Where pain is healed, and woe erased.
THE CROSS is where you find such grace.
Man can’t give you what you need,
On that, you and I agree.
THE CROSS is where fear is undone;
THE CROSS is where REAL life’s begun.
Abundant life with joy and peace;
Freedom’s found and you’re released!
It’s all right here awaiting you,
And here is all that you must do…
Come, hungry, needy, wanting more…
That is what MY CROSS is for!
To heal your wounds – replace your strife,
With Living Water bringing LIFE!
Come, drink your fill… and still, there’s more!
This is what MY CROSS is for.
A heart that’s healed – your life restored
At Grace and Mercy’s open door…
MY CROSS! That’s why I came and died.
Plunge beneath its crimson tide…
God’s grace is bountifully applied.
Mercy is free. Not one denied!
