“Lord Have Mercy; a Mother’s Prayer”, a worship poem from L.Willows

Lord Have Mercy; a Mother’s Prayer

Lord have mercy,
Live on past me.
Come into the hearts of my children, Lord.
Drawn them in to find you and see.

Lord have mercy,
Live on past me.
Come into the lives of my own, those dear-
Born from my start then apart, these hearts;
Oh Lord give them Your adore, this I implore.

Lord have mercy.
Live on past me.
Take them as Yours full into your grasp.
Bind this my all, these my children, I ask.
Come into their hearts with a fullness, all parts.
This, they belong, we all ask, we all grasp.
Lord, please have mercy,
From the first to the last.

Psalm 100:3
Know that the Lord, he is God! It is he who made us, and we are his; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.

Isaiah 43:1
But now thus says the Lord, he who created you, O Jacob, he who formed you, O Israel: “Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name, you are mine.
