Mercy

Mercy

A Poem by Jeff Bresee
"

What number counts the drops of rain...

"

The stars that fill the midnight sky,

or single grains of sand 

cannot compare to all his works

too vast to understand. 

 

What number counts the drops of rain 

that make the oceans wide? 

How many hours and days and years 

fill up eternal life?

 

How far the furthest star lies from 

the meager grasp of man? 

How far across this universe 

hath he stretched forth his hand? 

 

What mercy fills The Father’s heart 

which grants us time to grow? 

Too much for us to comprehend…

too much for us to know.
