    Lenten Mercy: A Poem

    As many appreciate the Lenten season, I share here a poem from my daughter Michelle.

    If you have not yet read the story of Michelle's journey from a perplexing language disorder to a love of poetry, consider Simply Classical: A Beautiful Education for Any Child.

    Michelle still struggles in many ways every day, but when her conscience is troubled, she knows where to find mercy.


    Wherefore, oh streams of mercy,
    I owe or ought have done,
    Twilight shades of poor repute
    Cast furrows long and brown.

    But ere I did stray
    From mercy's narrow way,
    Vulgar transgressions e'en worse than mine,
    Still God in mercy did receive,
    All with love, rich for poor.

    For the sake of the Lamb alone
    Does He call us His own sons.
    Home now to the banquet,
    Dear family, we come.

    Jesus, Lord, we thank Thee
    For Thy suffering sacrifice,
    Dear Jesus my Brother,
    Thou hast paid the price.
