FLOODGATES OF MERCY

Rachel Pearl sent this song to me, and, it is with her permission that I would like to share the song and her story with each of you during this week in which we pray the Divine Mercy Novena in preparation for the Solemnity of Divine Mercy Sunday.

It is based on a personal story of when her baby was sick. She would pray in front of the Divine Mercy Image each day. And, as her son was recovering, she lost some of her zeal for prayer. It was then that she noticed the Divine Mercy image had fallen to the floor, and she knew that it was reflecting her own prayer life which had fallen away!

It was at that moment that she pleaded for God’s forgiveness, and the song “The Floodgates of Mercy open up to me…” came into her heart.

Here are the lyrics to the song and the video she created:

Floodgates of Mercy

“I forget where I came from
And what I believe,
And why You chose me.
Spend my life like I’ve earned it, refusing to see
That you gave it to me.

“I want everything,
I want everything now.
What am I missing?
Cause it’s never enough, no!

“God, I’m here at my lowest;
And all I can do is
Cry out to You.

“Then the Floodgates of Mercy open up to me;
And my heart breaks to see my God run to meet me.
THIS IS Your Love
AND IT IS enough
When the Floodgates of Mercy open up to me.

“Caught up in this dependence
On every vice that feeds my desires.
Made to measure for glory,
Not knowing that is why
I’m never left satisfied.

“I think of everyone
Who I’ve ever let down.
Would they wait for me
If I turned things around;
I don’t know.

“God, I’ve burned all my bridges;
Got nothin’ to lose.
So I’ll turn back to You.

“Then the Floodgates of Mercy open up to me;
My heart breaks to see my God run to meet me.
THIS IS Your Love
AND IT IS enough,
Cause Your Love waits when no one else
Would wait for me.

“You have fought for my life
And You continue the fight,
Even when I deny You.
On Your Love I rely,
So pull me into the Light of Truth.

“You love me at my lowest,
So JESUS, that’s why I choose to trust in You!

“Then the Floodgates of Mercy open up to me;
My heart breaks to see my God run to meet me.
THIS IS Your Love
AND IT IS enough,
And don’t take, don’t take this Love away from me.

The Floodgates of Mercy open up to me.”
