Without your mercy, I will die.
Apart from your forgiveness, you will consume me in the fires of your holy judgment.

How can I live apart from you?
I would be lost entirely!
Yet, how can I live in your presence?
I should be devoured by your holy wrath!

I will hide in Jesus.
In Jesus, I will come into your holy presence.
Through Jesus, I will come to you.
In Jesus, you will be to me my Abba, my Father.

I need you, my good Father!
