Theophilia, “The Divine Mercy”

On my desk there is an icon
Sending mercy, showing Christ
Stepping forward out of heaven
Blood and water from His chest

Pouring white and blue and red
Mercy from His flesh and blood
Crown behind His sacred head
There against the world He stood

Mercy from His beating heart
From the pain sweat of His brow
Who will stand before this court
Plead for mercy, who allow?

Here on Earth they say “unjust”
And yet I say in You I trust
