Mercy

Jesus Christ Son of God
thank you for having mercy on
me—I thank you for the scars that
show the paths I could have been
abandoned to, but from which I,
by no merit of my own were
delivered from by you alone.
Thank you Jesus Christ, Son of
God for dealing patiently with me,
never holding my sin against me, refusing
to keep a record of my transgressions,
but always, always—smiling, tenderhearted,
graceful, loving, understanding—clearing
my guilt by virtue of your wounds. I
depend on you Jesus Christ, Son of God—
life means nothing without you, keep me
always in your fold, amen.
