TITLE: Echoes of Mercy

[Perfect submission, perfect delight! Visions of rapture now burst on my sight! Angels descending bring from above... Echoes of mercy, whispers of love. This is my story, this is my song, Praising my Savior all the day long! This is my story, this is my song, Praising my Savior all the day long.]

Blessed Assurance is a beautiful hymn by Fanny Crosby, and one of my favorites to sing. Earlier on faithwriters I wrote a poem called Whispers of Love taken from this song, and later I thought it would be appropriate to follow-up with this. I hope you like it and it sounds good. Any suggestions are appreciated!
1 The glistening fruit hangs before me, begging me to explore the forbidden tree
To taste itís sweet and juicy flavors, to eat and experience the delicious savor
I take the bait and soon regret my fatal mistake that has been set
The tempter comes and laughs in my face, the echoing words fill me with disgrace
Sin... sin... sin... sin...

2 My punishment for this is certain, forever cut off from God by a curtain
If no one comes to pay this debt I am doomed to be separated in regret
No man or woman wants to take my place, and none are worthy to in any case
Iím falling straight to my inevitable grave, no hope in sight and none to save
Death... Death... Death... Death...

3 Then I look up to suddenly see my beloved Savior rushing straight to me
On dark clouds he swiftly glides, like a horse and chariot speedily rides
He crashes down to the cursed ground and turns this dark world upside-down
What he plans to do, I do not know, but new hope and peace is suddenly aglow
Love... love... love... love...

4 The entire crowd stands up and shouts loud for this disruption of their corruption
Let this innocent Man be destroyed! The people agree and are overjoyed
They crucify and let You die, the most excruciating way to make one pay
The hope I once felt and thought would be dealt has slipped away from me today
Death... Death... Death... Death...

5 Although for You they did their best to defeat, their mission was completely incomplete
When senseless hate and astonishing love collided, the latter was victor and undivided
You rose from the grave, death lost itís sting, and now we know who really is King
A new promise has come for you and for me, to be with You again for all eternity
Life... life... life... life...

6 The echoes of death have now been replaced!
Mercy... Mercy... Mercy... Mercy...
You pulled me out by your painful disgrace
Mercy... Mercy... Mercy... Mercy...
Pushed me out of the way and eagerly took my place
Mercy... Mercy... Mercy... Mercy...
Thereís nothing more beautiful than your compassionate face
Mercy... Mercy... Mercy... Mercy...

This is my story, this is my song, Praising my Savior all the day long!
This is my story, this is my song, Praising my Savior all the day long.
