Tender Mercies

Tender Mercies

 

 

 

 

Thankful for the tender mercies

God has passed my way

The only thing to do with them

Is pass them on their way

 

Simple acts of kindness

That go unadvertised

Like quiet blessings shared by men

Who look through doe-like eyes

 

Two such men came calling

In clean white shirts and ties

Their mission was to bless a friend

And open up his eyes

 

They read some sacred words

And prayed and bowed their heads

Then my friend gave thanks to them

He’d come back from the dead

 

Some are small and some are vast

Like sunlight or the breeze

Divine ones always Heaven sent

Will bring you to your knees

 

You may remember someone who

You helped along the road

Or when you had a sudden fall

Who lifted up your load

 

We receive them every day

And give as much away

Like breathing in the morning air

Or knowing what to say

 

Tender mercies rarely seen on TV or the news

But by the unseen hand of God

They’re known by how we choose
