A Merciful God

A Merciful God...
My Lord and God...
please be merciful to me.
This is my prayer and
my heart's plea.
In you, Oh Lord...
 I put my faith and trust.
It's you, Oh God, who created
man from the dust.
I seek refuge in the
shadow of your wings.
There's a peace and healing
 this shadow brings!
I shall cry unto my God,
 who reigns on high.
Who fulfills his promises
 for you and I.
He will send from heaven
and save me from shame.
As I call out to him and
believe on his name.
Some have dug a pit...
waiting for me to fall in.
But they are trapped in
their deceit and sin.
In YOU, Oh God... my heart
is steadfast and true.
I will sing of  your praise and
make melody to you!
I will give thanks to God...
 who is mighty and great.
By his grace and mercy,
I shall enter his gates.
Be exalted Oh God...
so glorious and divine!
You are truthful, faithful,
loving and kind!

About the Poet
I and my wife have 4 grown children and currently live in the Pacific Northwest. I've spent much of my life doing volunteer work in the food distribution for the needy among local churches. Many of the poems I've written are a reflection of times of adversity as a reminder of God's love and faithfulness. I've found many opportunities to share my poems with those who are hurting and discouraged. I'm thankful for the reports of many of the poems touching people's lives. I hope that the poems included on Wordchimes will touch and bless your life too!
