“As for you, O LORD, you will not restrain your mercy from me;

your steadfast love and your faithfulness will ever preserve me!

For evils have encompassed me beyond number;

my iniquities have overtaken me, and I cannot see;

they are more than the hairs of my head;

my heart fails me.”

Psalm 40:11, 12

 

 

Your Mercy will find me.

He’s unrestrained.

A person, a power,

A force, not contained.

Alive, not dead.

You severed the leash

When You opened the grave

And Your Son was released

To enter my heart

And open my eyes

And erase all my sins

And expose every lie.

He is the Love that wants me free

That rolls up His sleeves and comes after me

To loose my chains and lead me out

“You dare me to turn away?” He shouts!

 

“NEVER!”

 

 “Nothing can ever at all restrain

My strong love for you.

Your fears, your pride, your shame, your sins—

 They merely block your view.

My gaze is set

So lift up your eyes.

I want you, Child…

For you, I died.”
