Listening Through Lent: Have Mercy

Starting today, Ash Wednesday, various Wiser Lake Chapel folks will be sharing a favorite hymn, its lyrics, a short devotional and an online version, to observe the season of Lent.  Please join us in “listening through Lent” to what our God wants us to hear.

 

Holy God
Holy and Mighty
Holy Immortal One
Have mercy, have mercy on us.

Holy God
Holy and mighty,
Holy Immortal One
Have mercy, have mercy on us.

Holy God
Holy and mighty
Holy Immortal One
Have mercy, have mercy, have mercy,
Have mercy, have mercy on us.
~Fernando Ortego “Trisagion”

 

On this day,
We begin the dusty journey
into the darkest ash heap
of our souls, confronting
our limitations,
our temptations,
our inability to think of ourselves second,
our acknowledgement that salvation
comes from no work of our own.

Have mercy on our heads bowed low,
listening to what you have to teach us.
~E Gibson
