Woo me with the Gospel,
Art from your timeless Tome,
Priceless life refilling my empty shell.
Breathless for what’s to come.
Your Word is
A portrait of You
Colors, shades, expressions true.
A poem littering love letters across my soul,
A glimmering light in stained-glass window
Radiant in darkest, dangerous places.
A story calling me home through desert places.
A familiar yet newly sung song,
Dancing, fluting, strumming, compelling,
Please hum along.
A diamond multifaceted and formed
In the depths of your faultless mind.
It glistens, cuts, and shines,
And etches my true name in time.
God of grace,
Paint in me portraits of truth.
Rhyme my dreams with those of you.
Tune my voice to your silvery note,
Versed in lyrics you through history wrote.
Shape my heart by diamond cut,
Your brilliant face in every facet.
Call me home through dark of night.
Welcomed back to your delight.
Create in me uncrowded room to perceive
To love, to follow, and receive
Your redemptive Word.
