Lord, Have Mercy: A Litany of the Person

As I have reflected all around me, and as I have been quite restless at night, I thought it would be fun, and hopefully encouraging, to make a short video (just over 3 minutes). You can watch it here.

I think I’ll try and make one each week.

The link to the poem read in the video is below.

A Litany of the Person

image of God

born of God’s breath

vessel of divine Love

after his likeness

dwelling of God

capacity for the infinite

eternally known

chosen of God

home of the Infinite Majesty

abiding in the Son

called from eternity

life in the Lord

temple of the Holy Spirit

branch of Christ

receptacle of the Most High

wellspring of Living Water

heir of the kingdom

the glory of God

abode of the Trinity.

God sings this litany

eternally in his Word.

This is who you are.
