LENT'S CROWN

Footprints of mercy 

fill my soul 

as the King of heaven 

walks within.

Holy love 

lights the way

Trembling, I follow.

Medicine from Sacred Writings:

 

"A merciful man is not arrayed in a vest reaching to the feet, nor does he carry about bells, nor wear a crown; but he is wrapped in a  sacred vestment, and is anointed with oil, not composed of material elements, but produced by the Spirit, and he bears a crown of mercies, for it is said, "Praise the Lord, O my soul; all my inmost being praise His holy name. Praise the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all His benefits- 

who crowns you with love and mercy."

Psalm 104:1, 2, 4

 

John Chrysostom    Fourth Century
