Oh God, you are justice incarnate.


Your path leads to life.


You gave mankind grace


To endure this world of strife.


Your judgment is swift,


But Your justice is fair


Because you see our hearts


And know our every care.


You see what motives hide


Within the doerís soul,


And understand the why


And know what was the goal.


You know the truth that lay


Beneath each action we take,


And in our darkest hours


Your children you donít forsake.


With mercy as Your measure,


You look upon our deeds,


And judge us not with harshness,


But according to our needs.


And, if we need chastisement,


You use a gentle hand.


Because of Your love for us


Repentance is Your only demand.


Yes, Oh God, Your name is justice,


But forgiveness is you gift


Because the simple act of asking


Can repair almost any rift


Our sin has caused between mankind and Thee,


And that loving forgiveness


Is what sets menís souls free.

Bobbi, There is no shelter from the storms of life anymore secure than His.

Your words are filled with inspiration and a great message.
