Mercy mighty
such simple greatness
foundation of all virtues
made solely for me
victorious, no, triumphant over all shame

Mercy unmeasured
a sacred exchange
personified in a baby
perfected on a cross
the ark that saves from deadly depths

Mercy met
now, lest lost
the measure given
is the multiplied gift
in His Holy House, a Mercy Seat for me

Mercy me
fill this vessel full
mark me son
paint my portrait mercy
the enemy mercy vanquished to friend

I am a sojourner, my days like a shadow,
there is no expectation of remaining.

I am a stranger, looked on as a outsider,
“You're not from around here are you?”

I am an alien, my allegiance to another,
my home a different place, always leaving here.

I am a pilgrim, with those from all nations,
yearning for and on my way to sacred Zion.
