04 Dec 2016 – Only the Merciful

Would you teach sinners? Come down off your mountain!
How could you get dirty and give up your gold?
What if a vision of God breaks upon you:
that tramp in the gutter who mirrors your soul?

Only the merciful dares preach God’s judgment.
Only the guilty dares plead for God’s mercy.
Only the one who at last knows they’re guilty
can see what they are – all the rest are unworthy.
