Never forget God's mercy is great as He is faithful and full of love. Read these Christian poems and verses to remind you of the great mercies that God possesses.

Let Us With A Gladsome Mind
Poet - John Milton

Let us, with a gladsome mind,
Praise the Lord, for He is kind:
For His mercies shall endure,
Ever faithful, ever sure.

He with all-commanding might,
Filled the new-made world with light;
For His mercies shall endure,
Ever faithful, ever sure.

All things living He doth feed,
His full hand supplies their need:
For His mercies shall endure,
Ever faithful, ever sure.

He His chosen race did bless
In the wasteful wilderness:
For His mercies shall endure,
Ever faithful, ever sure.

He hath, with a piteous eye,
Looked upon our misery:
For His mercies shall endure,
Ever faithful, ever sure.

Let us, then, with a gladsome mind,
Praise the Lord, for He is kind:
For His mercies shall endure,
Ever faithful, ever sure.

God Cares
Poet: Greta Zwaan, 1981

For many years you walked alone upon this weary road,
And God saw fit to share with you the burden of your load.
He did not leave you stranded to fight it on your own,
But gently claimed your soul one day and seeds of faith were sown.

God’s mercy and compassion are greater than we know,
And e’re He gives us burdens, His love He will bestow.
He set aside a time for you to lean upon His breast,
In tenderness He watches as you journey through this test.

Dear friend, you’re not forgotten, you’re precious in His sight,
The battle for survival alone you do not fight.
God’s method of refining takes many shapes and forms,
But a multi-colored rainbow usually follows storms.

Take courage and be faithful, rejoicing in your soul,
Your body may be weakened but your spirit is made whole.

How To Treat A Beggar
Poet: Greta Zwaan, 2006

If you are a king, you’re welcome at His throne;
If you are a pauper God says, “Come.”
There are no restrictions, no dress codes or degrees;
It doesn’t really matter where you’re from.

Man is quite selective and has a certain code;
Outcasts and beggars, we reject.
We have set the standards that we must uphold;
That is what our closest friends expect.

If there is a beggar standing at your door,
Pay him off and hurry, move him on.
Don’t get too involved by his sad appeal,
Give him food and tell him to be gone.

Think of your position; what will neighbours say?
Don’t even let him soil your welcome mat.
Beggars take advantage of your lovely home;
But you know it’s really not like that.

You can be quite generous, give charity your funds,
You can write a cheque to those in need.
But personally? be careful, don’t let your heart be swayed;
For all you know this begging comes from greed.

Yet God demands an answer, “Just who made you a judge?
I have allowed his poverty.
I have let him suffer, then brought him to your door,
For you have the means to set him free.

Accumulated riches that you’ve amassed at will –
Aren’t you aware that they are really mine?
They’re not your possessions as you’d like to think;
All of this is done by my design.

Were it my desire, I could set him free,
Then put you in the place that he is now.
But I have compassion; I’m giving you this chance,
It’s up to you, whatever you allow.

I will not demand that you bow to my request;
I won’t insist that you should treat him well.
But one day you will answer for the deeds you did today;
I just request, but I will not compel.

If you can see My mercy that I have made you rich;
Use the things you have for those in pain.
You stand to lose nothing by sharing of your wealth,
When you give it, count it for your gain.”
