“Just Mercy-A Story of Justice & Redemption” by Bryan Stevenson on Wisconsin Public Radio’s Chaper A Day


“Just Mercy: A Story of Justice and Redemption” by Bryan Stevenson.

Monday, October 19 through Friday, November 6, 2015. Read by Cynthia Woodland.

This is a story, as the title says, of justice and redemption, but it’s more. It’s about the criminal justice system in this country, and about the death penalty…and about people. Mostly it’s about people.

Icelandic Hymn by Kolbeinn Tumason (1173–1208)

Hear, smith of the heavens,
what the poet asks.
May your mercy come softly unto me.
I call on you, for you have created me.
I am your servant, and you are my true Lord.

God, I call on you to heal me.
Remember me, prince of peace.
Always we need you.
Generous and great, drive out, O king of heavens,
every human sorrow from the dwelling of the heart.

Watch over me, gentle one,
Always we need you, truly every moment,
in this world of men.
Send us, son of the virgin, good causes.
All help comes from you, into my deepest heart.
