I Know a Place

by Clinton Herring © 2020

I know a place where mercy reigns,
The throne of God - from there it rains.
It pours on me, and pours on all,
Yes, all we creatures from the fall.

God sent the Son to die for us
while we did rant, and rave, and cuss!
But by His work of grace, a cover,
from He who is our deepest lover!

It sets us free when we should die
and ends our strife, we know not why?
It is from Him a mercy gift
that spans our deep, dark, ugly rift.

His love on us rains down from high,
His work now cancels Satan's lie.
For we who choose, it brings us near
and sets us free and stops our fear.

Yes, God in mercy and kindness clothed
us in likeness, His mercy bestowed.
I know this place where mercy rains!
The throne of God, yes there it reigns!

Psalms 100:5 For the Lord is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endures to all generations.
