At the tables of betrayal
where stone has been bread
may Mercy prepare a new feast (of trust)

On the mountains of greed
where gain is god
may Mercy mint a new currency (of care)

In the camps of squalor
where despair scars the flesh
may Mercy lay a soothing balm (of hope)

In the houses of harm
where cruelty has control
may Mercy sweep its new broom (of justice)
