Fourth Night Mercy

If all the love of every mother
From Hawwa to the one
Who walks the sands of motherhood
Before this verse is done

Were all combined into one love,
A drop is all there’d be
Upon a wave that rolls across
A love that’s like the sea.

So send, my Lord, your rahmah on
Our sinful hearts afire
And let your mercy enter in
Extinguishing desire,

That when the midnight darkness falls
Upon a silent town
You find a heart that weeps and calls
For mercy to come down.
