Mercy and Might

"Thou, Lord, art good, and ready to forgive; and plenteous in mercy unto all them that call upon Thee… I will walk in Thy truth" (Psalm 86:5,11). "He that covereth his sins shall not prosper: but whoso confesseth and forsaketh them shall have mercy" (Proverbs 28:13).  "Jesus said… Go, and sin no more.  Then spake Jesus… I am the Light of the world: he that followeth Me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life… If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed" (John 8:11,12,36). 

The Lord is good and He forgives
The sinners who upon Him call. 
As our High Priest, He ever lives
To lift and lead us when we fall. 

Though we may be inclined to cover
Our sins with labels like "mistaken",
When we confess them, we discover
His mercy when they are forsaken. 

The Lord said "Go and sin no more"
To that poor woman caught in sin. 
Her freedom (never known before)  
To walk in truth would then begin. 

In darkness, Lord, You are the light
With truth that makes us free indeed.
We're saved by mercy and by might
To gladly follow where You lead.
