Mercy Cry (Psalm J) - Poem by Okoronkwo Jonathan Jackson

With what voice do I stand before you Lord.
To your warning I refused ears,
Your hand always keeping me from the touches of sin
But lo! I pushed those hands away
and when i thought i was standing strong
i lived in delusion
all was but an illusion
i took my own path refusing your calling
Now i live to cry
The tears are much I cannot hold them back.
Great evil have I committed before you.
Now i know the words of thy prophet are truly your words
Give me the strenght to stand this face of shame
Give me the courage to overcome this great turmoil
Which like a raging storm has befallen me
Should I ask for a second chance? No!
Instead in your mercy shall i confide
Looking up to you who are the hope of my glory
Even if my soul should relax,
My whole being cannot
Unless you speak those words of yours
Unless you touch me with your touch of mercy
To reannoint me with fresh oil, a new annointing
And forgive my evil thoughts
Will she ever forgive me?
I shouldn't be saying this
But Lord, I still love her
I desire greatly to spend the rest of my life with her
I know how greatly disappointed she may be
But you alone Lord can touch her heart;
You alone, can speak to her on my behalf.
Lord you know me better than I know myself
O God I come before you
I prostrate before that Throne of Grace
behold the both of us
forgive us this grievious sin
call us back to your fold
I give up my life of excessive passion
Bring back reconciliation
True Love
Please Lord come to our aid.
Truly its a chattered hope
But in You there is hope
its a broken future
but in You the future is sure
Come Lord Jesus,
The light is dying and the night keeps crying
Come and make my heart your home once more
Come and be everything I thought I ever know
Wash me toroughly
cleanse me from blood guilt
visit not this sin upon my generation
But upon me
Let your mercy be my saving grace
and your blood my hope of joyous
and glorious retoration
