Redeeming Grace?


For the child left crying in the night
and none to hear her sobbing plight,
who is to there to hear her plea
Where is this Lord of Mercy?

On a corner shivering stand
because no-one will lend a hand
just a part of lifes debris
Where is this Lord of Mercy?

A cardboard box beneath the sky
a homeless bed, jobs short supply,
there but for grace it could be me
Where is this Lord of Mercy?

The parson stands midst empty pews
sermon written for none who choose
to enter in a church that's free
Where is this Lord of Mercy?

A baby clasps his fathers hand
will grow to peace upon this land,
still all around with eyes to see
The Lord bestows his mercy.
