The Throne of Mercy

by Jason Kirk Bartley

Lord of all lords.
God sits on His throne.
He loves all of His children and
calls them His own.
Many will reject and mock Him,
but with an outstretched hand
He shows them His mercy in a dry 
and thirsty land. 
His throne is in heaven,
His footstool on earth.
We bow at His feet.
How much is our soul worth?
He sent us His Savior,
in the form of His only Son,
but some still choose darkness over the Holy One.
His Spirit of adoption is there for
anyone to claim.
He loves the most wretched of sinners,
and still calls them by name.
He’s always searching the hearts
of all men,
to make them all worthy and save them from sin.
His love everlasting.
His promises true.
There’s no limit in Christ to what we can do.
For anyone who calls,
All of Heaven prepares to rejoice,
at the news of a person who has made the right choice.
He will take a bad heart and make it not sour.
Call on Jesus this very hour.
Into His likeness, you can be made today,
He’s praying with you as you bow your head to pray.
Come home, my child,
don’t be a stray.
Christ came as a baby to prepare your way.
He lived to die and rise on the third day.
Nothing will suffice the emptiness you feel.
Come to Christ,
receive His seal.
He will place on your heart.
You’ll receive His Spirit and have a new start.
