As high above the earth

And as far as the heavens are;

Is the splendid touch of God’s mercy

That extends so wide and far.

He has cast all our transgressions

As far as the east is from the west,

So His peace is embossed within our heart

And our soul can know much rest.

He buries our errors from His sight

As deep as the earth can be;

He will never unravel nor dig them up

So His wrath we will not see.

His promises are honourable

And our faults He will disguise,

When we repent with a sincere heart

As He forgives our deception and lies.

He remembers that we are merely dust

And our frame is fragile too;

But He has pity on those who fear Him

With a desire to make things new.

As far as the east is from the west

Our shortcomings He will forget,

He is merciful and filled with compassion

When He wipes away our debt.

Nothing can compare to Him

As far as the east is from the west,

And His grace extends for eternity

He simply is the best!

(C) P.B. 2020

“For as the heavens are high above the earth, so great is His mercy toward those who fear Him; As far as the east is from the west, so far has He removed our transgressions from us.  As a father pities his children, so the Lord pities those who fear Him.  For He knows our frame; He remembers that we are dust.”  Psalm 103:11-14

“But the mercy of the Lord is from everlasting to everlasting on those who fear Him, and His righteousness to children’s children, to such as keep His covenant, and to those who remember His commandments to do them.”  Psalm 103:17-18

“But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far off have been brought near by the blood of Christ.”  Ephesians 2:13
