Sitting here quietly... poetic prayer

Updated: Apr 26

I am looking for Your grace again

My life it is so still

At this moment I am reaching out

My list is yet to fill


With things I want

To do right now

It takes Your grace and power


To make this life

You've given me

A chance to live this hour


A day is made

Yes step by step

A path You've laid the way


You saw me when

I was laid low

With no means yet to pay


The price for life

Yes it's real

No one could e'er afford


To hang upon

That cross my friend

Like the Blessed Lord


Yes Lord of life

He is it's true

It only takes a choice


So muster all

Your courage self

And shout out with your voice


I believe!

Yes, I believe!

You've come to set us free!


Stamped upon our souls baptized

The pain of sin relieve


Prac-tice it takes

To be per-fect

Poss-ible yes with grace


Come climb the hill

Where I do hang

And look upon My Face


A crown of thorns

Pierced hands and feet

A puncture in My side


The wounds are there

Yes I am He

I know you will abide


Humility

Humility

To see the Truth and weep


Go work this day

In charity

When night falls you may sleep


In peace we lay

In dreams we see

The vastness of eternity


How great that space

We've got to trek

I'm but a mere tiny speck


And yet You choose

To lift us to

A place where we

Can be with You


And all the angels

All the saints

All creation

No complaints
