We live by mercy

I’m far behind in my schoolwork, but I decided to take a little break for some Wendell Berry. I like this stanza from his “Amish Economy”–

We live by mercy if we live.
To that we have no fit reply
But working well and giving thanks,
Loving God, loving one another,
To keep Creation’s neighborhood.

In A Timbered Choir. Wendell is the man. Can I get an Amen?
