Lord, Have Mercy On Us


Lord, Thy sacrament is told to take away my sins, my guilt, and my sorrows;
Grace and blessing were bestowed;
Burden lifted and joy returns.
Why is now my heart so laden?
Wandering words absent, aimless mind blank, random thoughts disintegrated;
Inwardly this sinful heart is broken in anguish.
If this is the price for your forgiveness and mercy
I beg Thee to include her in my stead
As I now long to pay her for my quick temper and past faults
O Lord, again and again I breaks the promise
I had made in Thy presence fortnight
That I would reserve my heart only for Thee
But the inner wound is so deep, my Lord
May I now offer it as my oblation and holocaust
The burning of my inmost depth
I offer Thee, Oh Lord, to validate my redemptive sacrifice
For sins of mine, hers, and others’
Lord, have mercy.
Christ, have mercy,
Lord, have mercy.

Poem of the Day

poet Oliver Wendell Holmes

Life is real, life is earnest,
And the shell is not its pen –
“Egg thou art, and egg remainest”
Was not spoken of the hen.

Art is long and Time is fleeting,
