The Merciful Tyrant

The Merciful Tyrant

– by Jaihoon

O the Merciful Tyrant
I feel safer in the prison of Your fear
Scared I’m of freedom of my own desires

Restrain me with your Love
Set me not free to perish

Oppress me with your Mercy
Let not my Intellect fool me

Be my thirst and hunger,
O ‘my Merciful HIM’
Unquenched and Unfed
I remain forever in your want

Let Your love become my disease
And Your longing the symptom

For ever or more sick I may remain
And never a cure from it I attain

I have sins much beyond my count, yet-
Your infinite Mercy stops me from despair
