The Other Side: A Liturgy


The Other Side: A Liturgy

For these old four walls that house my loves--

Oh, the warm mercy of the LORD

~

For this skin, more comfortable with spent moments--

Oh, the soft mercy of the LORD

~

For the rending, the breaking of my facade--

Oh, the strong mercy of the LORD

~

For the shattering, for the gathering of my mind--

Oh, the hard mercy of the LORD

~

For the renewal, more sweet for things lost

Oh, the fresh mercy of the LORD

~

For the dying, the dropping of the dross

Oh, the deep mercy of the LORD

~

For the lightness of wings, the easy yoke of freedom

Oh, the wide mercy of the LORD

~

For the grit, for the burning of purpose

Oh, the holy-fire mercy of the LORD

~

For the other side of your world ending

Oh, the eternal mercy of the LORD

~

For Thee we thank.
