I discovered an epic – EPIC – band, "The Whistles and the Bells", several months ago.. Right away I fell in love with the songs and voice of Bryan Simpson and made my admiration official by designing a wallpaper inspired by their band name. (Look closely at the detail of the horse.. It's not just an usual horse, you might have to download the wallpaper to look at it at it's full size.)

Below is the lyrics of the song that got my attention – "Mercy Please". (And below that you can listen to the song.)

Mercy Please
If we are what we eat then my future it is scary
For I have been scarfing down the pages of the devil’s dictionary
In my veins there’s a potent cocktail of fear and worry
That will show in my soul when the test results return from its autopsy

I need just a little bit more, a little bit more, a little bit more mercy please
Just a little bit more, a little bit more, a little bit more all I need
Just a little bit more, a little bit more, a little bit more mercy please
A beggar at your door, a beggar at your door I will always be

When the henchman of midnight march me up to the gallows
and I stand accused with a noose around my neck in the shadows
and my crimes fill the dark as the ringleader barks and he bellows
A whisper of hope cuts the burlap rope
And steals all this ghetto kings gusto

I need just a little bit more, a little bit more, a little bit more mercy please
Just a little bit more, a little bit more, a little bit more all I need
Just a little bit more, a little bit more, a little bit more mercy please
A beggar at your door, a beggar at your door I will always be

Why do I love the song? I think people that’s in a relationship with Jesus Christ just have times of very dark, real discouragements.. (more…)
