whisper of grace

Yell at me with your religiosity

Raise your voice and convince me of your argument

But I will not hear those words

I will not accept shouts

How can you look at a sinner and win him over with screams and condemnation

You will win no hearts

and they will walk away

because The Prince of Peace

stoops down to write in the sand

and condemns no one

though He ought to

His love extends to the wretched sinner

and the sinner fixes his gaze

upon a whisper of grace
