Lord of Mercy and Lord of Love
We deserve death, destruction, and the loss of all we hold dear because the sins we have committed O Lord, but Thou dost deserve to hold us in Thy Heart in purity for Thou art Almighty God. Let the blessings to which Thou art entitled overrule the damnations to which we art entitled for we demanded to take charge of our lives and live in our pleasures on our own terms and refused to surrender ourselves to Thee and live in Thy love on Thy terms. We do not deserve Thy mercy, O Lover of Mankind, but Thou dost deserve to have us in Thy love. We have broken Thy Heart by our sins, give us Thy love to raise us out of our sins that we might dwell in Thee.
