八福 (2): 憐憫 The Beatitudes 2: Mercy – 2018-01-28

And here’s the poem I mentioned in the sermon:

The Moonlight

In the consuming darkness of night
I was as good as blind
Bumping into walls that I could not see
Crying for help but no one would heed
Then a gentle breeze came
The clouds that covered the sky were swept away
It was still night, sad to say
But the moonlight came, and all was changed

That little moon did wonders to the dark of night
And I am thankful for the hope it brought me
With it I could see those walls in my way
And try to find a better path for my journey

Just when I was content with the tender moonlight
It spoke to me in a gentle whisper:
“I’m glad I can help you and other weary souls
But there’s more, if you care to know

“There is the sun, to whom I owe everything
It’s his light I reflect, and his love you feel
He is waiting for you to come and seek him
As he has always been throughout eternity

“He is your origin, the answer to everything
The only constancy, the one true thing
He will never fail you, if you care to love him
And he will always be there when you need him”

So I sought and found him–the sun in the sky
His light warms my heart and guides me to go on
Yet I’ve not forgotten the little moon and its gentle moonlight
And I’m ready to be one myself, to all souls still struggling in the night
