The cherubim spread out their wings above, overshadowing the mercy seat with their wings, with their faces one to another; toward the mercy seat were the faces of the cherubim.
born a sinner
and choosing to rebel
living with the damage
of what hurt when Adam fell
I need mercy.
God reached out to sinners
who did not have a prayer
and those who could not be holy
at the cross found forgiveness there
God gave mercy.
by one such pardoned soul
mercy is forever my miracle -- life obtained
through Jesus’ death born anew forever
God’s mercy is how I am sustained
I found mercy.
