A Sip From God’s Mercy Cup ~

When your heart screams,
I can’t take anymore . . .
when it can no longer
continue in torment’s war.

That is when it needs,
God protective shield
so to His perfect peace
it can begin to yield.

When you heart hollers,
stop terrorizing me . . .
when it shouts out loud
why won’t you let me be.

That’s when it needs,
Jesus to console it
so He can bring His calm
into your own spirit.

When your heart comes,
to a place of giving up . . .
stop and take a long sip
from God’s mercy cup!

~~~~~~~~~~

Lamentations 3:22-23

It is of the Lord’s mercies
that we are not consumed,
because his compassions fail not.

They are new every morning:
great is thy faithfulness.

My cup runneth over.

From The Poem: Give Me A New Morning

 


My Feet Have Slipped ~

My feet have slipped,
a thousand times . . .
they have stumbled into
satan’s land mines.

They have wandered,
both far and wide
they have retreated
in a race to hide.

My feet have plunged,
into many a pit
they have caused me
from the truth to split.

They have traveled,
without a thought
they have ventured
from all once taught.

My feel have roamed,
they have strayed and slipped
yet, by the mercy of God . . .
He kept them in His grip!

~~~~~~~~~

Psalm 94:18-19

When I said, My foot slippeth;
thy mercy, O Lord, held me up.

In the multitude of my thoughts
within me thy comforts
delight my soul.

Under The Umbrella Of God’s Love ~

Under God’s umbrella,
of His merciful love
all of us He protects
from His throne above.

He shields our weary hearts,
covers our worried minds
so that His perfect peace
we can always come to find.

Under God’s umbrella,
of Jesus’ forgiving grace
are the spokes of trust
to keep us going in the race.

He gives us the faith,
everyday to help us cope
by giving us His Spirit
of abounding, living hope.

Under God’s umbrella,
of His mercy above
there is a plethora . . .
of hope, peace and love!

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 28:7

The Lord is my strength
and my shield; my heart
trusted in him,
and I am helped:

therefore my heart
greatly rejoiceth;
and with my song
will I praise him.

Breaking The Chain of Pain ~

Living in the past,
is so easy to do . . .
it’s not hard to recall
the bad things done to you.

Letting go is not so simple,
there’s no effort in hanging on
and to forget the past images
takes an awful lot of brawn.

So, we live with the despair,
the heartaches and the pain
and the peace God promised
our misery will only drain.

It’s not until we come,
to a place where we forgive
that we find the tranquility
in which God wants us to live.

So, if you are in the shackles,
which bind you to the past
let Jesus release your burden
and you’ll be free at last!

Psalm 55:22

“Cast thy burden upon the Lord,
and he shall sustain thee:
he shall never suffer the
righteous to be moved.”

In God’s Holy Presence ~

In God’s holy presence,
there’s joy in its fullness
pleasures circulating
His everlasting goodness.

There is peace and hope,
a spreading of refreshing
an ongoing revolving
of life-changing blessings.

In God’s holy presence,
there’s mercy restoring
upon the Holy Spirit’s
heart filling outpouring.

There’s an internal calm,
an outgoing of favor
the ongoing flowing
of grace from a Savior.

In God’s holy presence,
here and above . . .
there’s an effortless flow
of steadfast love!

“Thou wilt shew me the path of life:
in thy presence is fulness of joy;

Give Me A New Morning ~

Give me a new morning,
on which to arise . . .
were to God’s mercies
I’ll again be apprised.

Let me see hope’s beams,
shedding on me His light
to remind me He kept me
safe through the night.

Give me a new dawn,
in which to awaken . . .
so all of God’s compassion
I can soak and take in.

Let me feel the coolness,
of the morning’s early dew
so I may again be aware
all things He makes new.

Give me a new morning,
where for His peace I await
as my soul to His glory . . .
begins to quietly awake!

God’s Mercy & Compassion ~

by the worries you carry

When you feel heavy-laden,
by your every care
and the thought of tomorrow
you cannot seem to bear.

Know this one thing,

God’s compassions
heal and cure.

When you are over-loaded,
by your fear and doubt
God’s merciful compassion
will fail ~ you not!

The Source of My Solace ~

God is the source,
of my solace . . .
for His loving-kindness
is perfect and flawless.

Whenever I need,
mercy anew
for me He always
pulls right through.

He sends me peace,
whenever I’m afflicted
consoles me with
a love unrestricted.

When more grace,
I need to get by
He sends it to me
without questioning why.

God is the source,
of my contentment
for He always brings
my soul refreshment.

And so to all of you,
my solace I pass along
so the God of our comfort
will too, make you strong!

Days Without Rain ~

God didn’t promise us,
days without any rain
times when we’d have
no suffering or pain.

But, He did promise us,
He’d always be there
to carry our burdens
and to ease our care.

God didn’t promise us,
skies constantly blue
nor that thunderous storms
in our lives wouldn’t brew.

But, He did promise us,
the grace to endure
His wings as a shelter
to keep us secure.

God didn’t promise us,
life would be pain-free
but, He did promise us . . .
through it all, He would be!

~~~~~~~~~~~

Matthew 5:45

“That ye may be the children
of your Father which is
in heaven: for he maketh
his sun to rise on the evil
and on the good, and sendeth
rain on the just
and on the unjust.”

There’s Nothing So Hard ~

 

There is no heart so hard,
that God cannot transform
there is no soul so dark
that mercy cannot reform.

There is nothing so hard,
that God will have us to do
there are no circumstances
that He can’t strengthen you.

There is no trial too hard,
that God can’t help us bear
there is no test so daunting
that grace won’t meet us there.

There is no road too hard,
that God may have for us
there is no path so tough
that we can’t learn to trust.

There’s nothing so hard,
that God cannot do . . .
there is no heart so powerless
when He lives inside of you!

~~~~~~~~~~~

“Behold, I am the Lord,
the God of all flesh:
is there any thing
too hard for me?”

The Mercy of God is Powerful ~

The Mercy of God is potent,
it can loosen every chain
holding one of His children
in the torment of their pain.

The mercy of God is powerful,
it breaks the sinful binds
it restores and it can heal
His children’s hearts and minds.

The mercy of God is delivering,
it weakens wickedness’ grasp
it gives His children strength
from satan’s hold, to unclasp.

The mercy of God is freeing,
it separates good from evil
His children it will save
from the schemes of the devil.

The mercy of God is bountiful,
it’s sufficient and plenteous
His children know intimately
just how much, He is gracious!

We All Have A Past ~

We all have a past,
filled with painful things
we all cringe . . .
at the memories they bring.

We all need to find,
God’s favor and grace
we all need God’s mercy
so the past we can face.

We all have feelings,
of resentment and ill-will
we all wince . . .
at how others make us feel.

We all need to find,
God’s healing peace
we all need God’s mercy
so our pain He can release.

We all have suffered,
the heartache of rejection
we all recoil . . .
when the past we mention.

We all need to find,
God’s way to forgiveness
we all need God’s mercy
so we can be rid of bitterness.

We all have a past,
filled with painful things
we all need God’s mercy
and the healing that it brings!

God Get’s You ~

god-gets-you-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

God gets you,
He knows what you’re all about
He sees into your mind
He gets you from the inside out.

God gets you,
He sees through all the layers
He knows what’s going on
for He’s a heart surveyor.

God gets you,
He has got you pegged
no matter how hard you try
you cannot pull His leg.

God gets you,
He knows your shortcomings
He gets that you have
over them some misgivings.

God gets you,
He can read you like a book
He tracks your every move
knows every wrong turn took.

God gets you,
yet, He loves you anyway
for He understands you
in every single way!

acquainted with all my ways.”

The Microscope of Grace ~

hidden-sin-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

Under the microscope of grace,
God sees our imperfection
and we must be willing to open . . .
up our hearts for His inspection.

Through the lens of His mercy,
He can spot our hidden sin
and we must let Him search
the crevices within.

His light will focus in on,
the darkness still inside
and we must realize from Him
there’s nothing we can hide.

With compassion and pity,
God sees us who we are
He can spot in a second
those close to Him or far.

God looks for His Son’s image,
to be reflected back at Him
and under grace’s microscope . . .
He sees through our secret sin!

~~~~~~~

1 Corinthians 4:5
King James Version

“Therefore judge nothing
before the time,

until the Lord come,
who both will bring to light

the hidden things of darkness,
and will make manifest

the counsels of the hearts:
and then shall every
man have praise of God.”

For they bring me hope,

I so often dwell!

Seeking God’s Favor ~

Seeking God's Favor ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Those who seek God’s favor,
before they start their day
find protection for their soul
as they go about their way.

Our early cries to God,
our morning meditation
are for our troubled soul
the best kind of medication.

Those who seek God’s mercy,
with a heart full of praise
find peace and tranquility
along life’s winding maze.

Our pleas for daily strength,
our prayers for our enemy
are our souls best defense
with an everlasting remedy.

Our requests to God,
our petitions for endurance
are for our thankful souls
a shield of assurance.

Those who seek God’s favor
in the early morning light
are the ones who are filled
with His power and His might!

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 5:1-3

“Give ear to my words,
O Lord, consider my meditation.

Hearken unto the voice of my cry,
my King, and my God: for unto
thee will I pray.

My voice shalt thou hear
in the morning, O Lord;
in the morning will I direct
my prayer unto thee,
and will look up.”

Mercy Showers ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Showers of mercy,

Without God’s Mercy ~

Without God's Mercy ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Without God’s mercy,
I would be pitiful
without His favor
I would be miserable.

Without His compassion,
I wouldn’t be sympathetic
without His humbleness
I wouldn’t be apologetic.

Without God’s clemency,
I would be hopeless
without God’s patience
I would be useless.

Without His mildness,
I would not be forgiving
without His tenderness
I would not be accepting.

Without God’s mercy,
I would be deplorable
without His favor
I would be just horrible!

~~~~~~~~~

Colossians 3:12-13

“Put on therefore, as the elect of God
holy and beloved, bowels of mercies,
kindness, humbleness of mind,
meekness, longsuffering;

Forbearing one another, and forgiving
one another, if any man have a quarrel
against any: even as Christ forgave
you, so also do ye.”

Closer to God ~

Rest the Devil ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

The closer to God I am,
the more meek I need to be
the nearer to Him I get
the more He wants of me.

The faster I understand,
the quicker I can see
surrendering all to God
will make the devil flee.

The deeper I know God,
the greater is my sin
more serious are the ones
I’ve  hidden away from Him.

The earlier I can turn,
from being double-minded
the sooner I’ll not be
by Satan’s lies blind-sided.

The humbler I become,
the closer to God I get
the nearer to Jesus I am
the more my sins, I regret!

~~~~~~~~

James 4:7-9

“Submit yourselves therefore to God.
Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.
 Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you.

Cleanse your hands, ye sinners;
 and purify your hearts, ye double minded.

Be afflicted, and mourn, and weep:
let your laughter be turned to mourning,
and your joy to heaviness.”

Joy in Mourning ~

Tears by John Emery free photo #14718

Tonight, I’m purging my sorrow,
I am crying my last tear
I am not going to weep
for, I’ve nothing left to fear.

Thou there is darkness,
surrounding me tonight
tomorrow I will awake
to His gracious light.

Tonight, I’m getting rid of,
all the pain that I feel
the grief I’ve bottled up
so my tears God can heal.

My sobbing He has noted,
they’re in His book of grace
tomorrow night there won’t be
any tears running off my face.

Tonight, I’m purging my sorrow,
I’ll not be crying in the morning
I am not going to weep . . .
for, joy has replaced my mourning!

let Your love pour into me
till Your heart I embrace.

Lead me to still waters,
where hope runs deep
let Your compassion
into my soul slowly seep.

Guide me in the valley,
when shadows are there
direct my heart to know
my burdens You’ll bear.

Let me lean on Your rod,
the staff of  harmony
make me to lie down
in fields of intimacy.

Lord, shower me with mercy,
let Your grace rain on me
send a downpour of hope
till in heaven we will be!

God is Patient ~

God Is Patient ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborahann

God is patient,
He has the time
to work out in us
the dirt and grime.

He uses His Word,
to cleanse within
so from our sins
we are forgiven.

God is unwearied,
He knows we’re blind
that’s why His Son
died for all mankind.

He desires not one,
of us to perish
each soul He loves
we all are cherished.

God is patient,
merciful too
He has the time . . .
what will you do?

~~~~~~

2 Peter 3:9

“The Lord is not slack concerning his promise,
as some men count slackness;
but is longsuffering to us-ward,
not willing that any should perish,
but that all should come to repentance.”

God’s Abundant Mercy ~

May you find God’s  mercy,
His peace and love for you
may you find His grace
being multiplied in you too.

May you find God’s strength,
through the storms of this life
may you find His healing touch
in the midst of your strife.

May you find God’s peace,
in the heaviness of your heart
may you find His assurance
He will never leave or depart.

May you find God’s renewal,
in the weariness of your days
may you find His promise
to show you all of His ways.

May you find the abundance,
of God’s mercy and grace
may you find His favor too
as another day you face!

Mercy Anew ~

New Day-New Mercy ~CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~ used with permission IBible Verses

Lord, You are my Rock,
my only safe harbor
in You, I can find rest
under mercy’s arbor.

Your great faithfulness,
shall never leave me
Your compassion comes
with this one guarantee . . .

When I rise in the morning,
You’ll always be there
with merciful hands
to take upon my cares.

You will be my hope,
as the sun appears
collecting in Your bottle

Lord, You are my portion,
I claim my stake in You

Your mercy anew!

The Lord is good unto them

Why My Heart Sings ~

My heart shall not tremble,
though I have my fear . . .
my heart shall not shake
for my God, is always near.

My spirit calls on His name,
searches for His face
my spirit takes its cover
in the arms of grace.

My soul shall find rest,
as it learns how to soar
my soul shall be blessed
with His mercy evermore.

I shall trust in the Lord,
His strength I will seek
I shall trust in His power
to help when I’m weak.

To eternity I will abide,
under His mighty wings
forever with Him I’ll dwell
tis . . why my heart sings!

Where Grace and Mercy Dwells ~

Where Grace and Mercy Dwells ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Sometimes I wander,
through the valleys of my soul
lingering near the streams of life
when I felt well and whole.

I ponder the times Jesus filled in,
the empty and void space
where His love for me flowed
like a river full of endless grace.

As I stroll along the rugged clefts,
I can see the hard times too
as I roam all around them
His mercy for me shines through.

I reflect on the days and nights,
when I thought I was on my own
but now I can see how Jesus
never once, left me all alone.

I come across the mountains,
that I had to hike up to . . .
some of them I never thought
the hard climb, I could ever do.

But there I see Jesus,
standing upon the crest
calling down to me
“Come, I’ll give you rest.”

Sometimes I like to wander,
through life’s hills and dells
and go deep into my soul
where grace and mercy dwells.

God Will Mend ~

God Will Mend ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

I have lived a life of losses,
with hardship as my friend
and I’ve come to understand
that God will always mend.

For there is not a problem,
too great for Him to take
it’s when we don’t go to Him
we make our first mistake.

There isn’t a broken heart,
which He cannot repair
not a soul He won’t save
if they come to Him in prayer.

No trouble is too imposing,
no worry is too small
for Jesus came to heal
and restore one and all.

So no matter what your loss,
no matter where you’ve been
let God repair and mend
the effects of pain and sin!

Grace Saw Beyond ~

God has Bee Gracious to Me used with permission from Darrell Creswell

Grace saw beyond,
the worthless and unworthy
it looked past the sin
with its unmerited mercy.

Grace saw beyond,
the bondage of the soul
it broke loose the yoke
to heal and make whole.

Grace saw beyond,
the outward behavior
it  looked past the wickedness
with its unwarranted favor.

Grace saw beyond,
the look of the proud
it recognized the helpless
standing out in a crowd.

Grace saw beyond,
the stony-human heart
it looked past the coldness
so love it could impart.

Grace saw beyond,
corruption, lust and greed
it came in the name of Jesus
so from works we’d be freed!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

2 Timothy 1:9
King James Version

“Who hath saved us, and called us with an holy calling,
not according to our works,
but according to his own purpose and grace,
which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began”

Just A Touch Of His Hem . . .

Encounters by Cameron Smith  free photo Creationswap

When I saw Him from a distance,
I ran and followed after Him
I believed all that I needed
was just a touch ~  of His hem.

For years I have been shunned,
turned away by those around me
so I hid myself in the crowd
praying my shame ~ He wouldn’t see.

As He passed  by I reached down,
and took from Him, my cure
for this man that they call Jesus
I knew He’d heal, if my faith was pure.

He stopped and called me His daughter,
when my belief in Him I revealed
and from that very moment
from my disease I was healed.

He bid to me to go in good comfort,
saying my faith had made me whole
I believe  as  I touched His hem . . .
He imparted His favor onto my  soul.

There is a moral to my story,
never be too ashamed of your illness or sin
for Jesus still  heals our weaknesses
if you just let Him touch you ~ from within!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Matthew 9:20-22
King James Version

“And, behold, a woman, which was diseased
with an issue of blood twelve years, came
behind him, and touched the hem of his
garment: For she said within herself, If I
may but touch his garment, I shall be whole.
But Jesus turned him about, and when he
saw her, he said, Daughter, be of good
comfort; thy faith hath made thee whole.
And the woman was made whole from that hour. “

Rejection’s Tears . . .

Tears by John Emery free photo #14718

Tears drip,
from swollen eyes
rejection again . . .
the heart cries.

Loss of arm,
or another limb
would hurt no more
or be less grim.

To feel the pain,
of denial
then to have to . . .
force a smile.

There can be,
no greater grief
but God’s mercy
will bring relief!

The Chain of Pain

Be Free by Marian Trindad free photo

Living in the past,
is so easy to do . . .
thinking about the things
that other’s did to you.

Letting go isn’t simple,
there’s no effort in hanging on
and to forget the images
takes an awful lot of brawn.

So, we live with the despair,
the heartaches and the pain
and the peace, God promises
our misery will only drain.

It’s not until we come,
to a place where we forgive
that we’ll find the harmony
in which God intended us to live.

So, if you are in the shackles,
which bind you to the past
let Jesus release the burden
and you’ll be free at last.

The future holds great promise,
to those who give Him their pain
for only Jesus can heal the hurt
of every painful link on the chain !

~~~~~~~~~~~~

and he shall sustain thee:
he shall never suffer the righteous to be moved.”

His Precious Love ~

Lord, in thy loving kindness,
I put my trust in You
for there is not anything
for me ~ you wouldn’t do.

I am taken to new heights,
on Your wings I now soar
together we mount and rise
like waves upon the shore.

Your love for me is precious,
it’s something I do treasure
Your tender-hearted mercies
I cannot count or measure.

I have found my perfect rest,
in the shadow of Your calmness
it’s to You I cling and cleave
on the breeze of peacefulness.

Lord, In thy loving kindness,
I have put my trust in You
and there isn’t anything
for You ~ I wouldn’t do.

By His Stripes ?

lamb-of-god free photo

If Jesus abased and humbled Himself,
then why don’t we hold Him in esteem?
If He was obedient even unto the cross,
then why won’t His salvation we redeem?

If He bore His own grief and sorrow,
then why don’t we think He’ll take ours?
If He took upon Himself our punishment
then why don’t we see His scars?

If He was wounded for our transgressions,
then why do we still pursue after sin?
If He was bruised for our iniquities,
then why does immorality still win?

If His chastisement became our peace,
then why do we still have so much conflict?
If by His stripes, we have been healed,
then why do we on others ~ pain inflict?

If He was oppressed and treated unfairly,
then why do we still treat Him this way?
It must be true what the Bible tells us,
all of His sheep . . . have gone astray!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Isaiah 53:5
King James Version

“But he was wounded for our
transgressions, he was bruised for our

Keep Me Lord ~

Hold On by Marian Trinidad free photo #8554

Lord, keep me on Your course,
don’t let me get off the track
keep me looking forward
help me not to look back.

Lord, keep me going straight,
in the right and true direction
keep me seeking for my shelter
in the arms of Your protection.

Lord, keep me walking closely,
on the path You’ve laid for me
keep me searching for only You
until it’s Your light that I see.

Lord, keep me on the narrow,
no matter how small it gets
keep me from falling far away
so I have no life’s regrets.

Lord, keep me moving onward,
until I catch up with You
keep me holding Your hand
on my journey to be with You.

His Eyes are Everywhere ~

His Eyes Are Everywhere ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann
The eyes of the Lord are everywhere,
there isn’t anything He can’t see
He can peer through the darkest cloud
and see past the depth of the bluest sea.

The eyes of the Lord are forever watching,
they want to see whose heart is upright
they are looking to see if there is anyone
who is pleasing and righteous in His sight.

The eyes of the Lord are always searching,
they are constantly moving back and forth
they are scanning over the entire earth
spinning from the south to the north.

His eyes are on the souls of everyone,
He is looking for anyone that He can find
for those who will eternally love Him
with their whole heart and all their mind.

They are turning to the east and the west,
they are perpetually moving to and fro
over the whole universe they are moving
they are searching both high and low.

The eyes of the Lord are searching,
He is looking everywhere He can
He is seeking those who still believe
in the Words of the Son of Man.

The eyes of the Lord are everywhere,
there isn’t anything He can’t see
He can see through the heart of man
and right now He’s looking at you and me!

His Wing’s Shadow ~

Under the shadow of Your wings,
where no sun or rain will blind
where Thy loving-kindness waits

Under the shadow of Your wings,
where no storm or wind will meet
where Thy grace inspires calm
to give the weary heart retreat.

Under the shadow of Your wings,
where no fear or doubt will soar
where Thy steadfast love exists
to help grieving hearts restore.

Under the shadow of Your wings,
where no pain or hurt will be
where Thy goodness is prepared
to bring broken hearts to Thee.

Under the shadow of Your wings,
where no star or moon will fade
where Thy mercies reach forever
to heal hearts that are afraid.

Oh, precious is Your loving kindness,
where our trust can mount and rise
where unfailing love gives assurance
Your wing’s shadow protects our cries.

His Precious Sparrows ~

live like a sparrow by Sandara Lee free photo#10095

As His precious sparrows,
we’re helpless little things
barely are we able
to spread our tiny wings.

The wind and the rain,
so often slows us down
when stuck in a storm at sea
it feels like we’re gonna drown.

In our flight, we try to find,
a place to call a safe harbor
where we can find some comfort
from the pains of our labor.

Cold and hungry we flutter,
long into the stormy night
in the darkness, we try to find
the power to continue in our flight.

We so desperately need,
to find the peace that we seek
for our weary minds
have made us frail and weak.

Into His light we soar,
when our travels come to an end
where with our Lord and Savior
in eternity we will spend.

As His precious sparrows,
we’re helpless little things
but all through our journey . . .
He’s been the strength in our wings.

Lord, I am thirsty,
I need more of You . . .
for, there’s a spiritual drought
right now I am going through.

Fill me with fresh hope,
take the aridness in my soul away
rain on me Your tender mercy
renew my heart in You today.

Lord, I am thirsty,
my arms are opened wide
protect and defend me
come be my eternal guide.

Make this dry season I’m in,
turn into Your valley green
where Living Waters flow
so on You I may lean.

Lord, I am thirsty,
I need more of You . . .
restore in me my youthful faith
like the refreshing morning dew!

Tears From Heaven ~

Tears From Heaven ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

The tears left their ducts,
where more would fall from
for His eyes see the sadness
of the days still yet to come.

They well within their rims,
till they begin to over flow
for His eyes see the sorrow
of what only He could know.

They trickle down His cheeks,
as they slowly start to run
for His eyes see the world
without the love of His Son.

They flood from their brims,
and puddle onto the floor
for His eyes see the day
this world will be no more.

Tears fall from up in heaven,
like a thunderous mighty rain
so many still live their lives . . .
in futileness and in vain.

God cries for the unsaved,
the lost, the unforgiven . . .
His tears reflect those who reject
what His Son has so freely given!

Tears In A Bottle

There is a bottle up in heaven,
filling up with all your tears
drop by drop the Lord collects
the full harvest of your fears.

There is not a tear that falls,
where He is not aware
for He understands each drip
and the cause of your despair.

When tears of sadness,
are followed up with grief
He garners them in His vial
and sends His peace for relief.

He knows every wound,
as He gathers up your pain
and all your hurtful tears
to Him become like rain.

He reaps each tender trickle,
with His mercies from above
collects them in His bottle
and caps them  ~ with His love.
