Echoes of Mercy
by Jacob Gibson  
10/07/2009 / Poetry

1 The glistening fruit hangs before me, begging me to explore the forbidden tree
To taste it's sweet and juicy flavors, to eat and experience the delicious savor
I take the bait and soon regret my fatal mistake that has been set
The tempter comes and laughs in my face, the echoing words fill me with disgrace
Sin... sin... sin... sin...

2 My punishment for this is certain, forever cut off from God by a curtain
If no one comes to pay this debt I am doomed to be separated in regret
No man or woman wants to take my place, and none are worthy to in any case
I'm falling straight to my inevitable grave, no hope in sight and none to save
Death... Death... Death... Death...

3 I look up to suddenly see my beloved Savior rushing straight to me
On dark clouds he swiftly glides, like a horse and chariot speedily rides
He crashes down to the cursed ground and turns this dark world upside-down
What he plans to do, I do not know, but new hope and peace is suddenly aglow
Love... love... love... love...

4 The entire crowd stands up and shouts loud for this disruption of their corruption
Let this innocent Man be destroyed! The people agree and are overjoyed
They crucify and let You die, the most excruciating way to make one pay
The hope I once felt and thought would be dealt has slipped away from me today
Death... Death... Death... Death...

5 Although for You they did their best to defeat, their mission was completely incomplete
When senseless hate and astonishing love collided, the latter was victor and undivided
You rose from the grave, death lost it's sting, and now we know who really is King
A new promise has come for you and for me, to be with You again for all eternity
Life... life... life... life...

6 The echoes of death have now been replaced!
Mercy... Mercy... Mercy... Mercy...
You pulled me out by your painful disgrace
Mercy... Mercy... Mercy... Mercy...
Pushed me out of the way and eagerly took my place
Mercy... Mercy... Mercy... Mercy...
There's nothing more beautiful than your compassionate face
Mercy... Mercy... Mercy... Mercy...

This is my story, this is my song, Praising my Savior all the day long!
This is my story, this is my song, Praising my Savior all the day long. (from the hymn Blessed Assurance)

I'm a college grad who likes writing, creativity, entertaining, music, computers, and video games. My best ideas always come from God at unexpected times. I do my best to improve and work hard. My life passion is to spread God's truth and love to as many as I can.
