That is What Mercy Does
That’s What Mercy Does
Caught in the act of adultery,
Morally dirty and ashamed.
Dragged to the court by her persecutors,
Her heart was filled with fright.
Hot tears began to streak her cheeks,
As angry shouts filled the streets.
Guilty as charged - condemned to die,
Judgment was coming so swift.
Men gathered stones, soon to be thrown
At the trash that knelt on her knees.
Then Jesus walked up and judgment asked him,
In a pious and self righteous way.
Moses said, “She is to be stoned,
What Jesus, do you have to say?”
Jesus ignored them,
And simply wrote in the sand.
Then this is what Jesus said,
“If you have no sin, then you may begin.”
No one had anything to say,
It was not long until they were gone.
Then Jesus asked, as he lifted her head,
“Where are those that condemn thee?”
“There are none Lord,
They have all gone away.”
“Neither do I, go and sin no more,”
That is what mercy does.
Evangelist Rick J/ Musick
