The heart of God

November 8, 2010

~
I see the heart of God
His passion overwhelms me
His despair was a choice he made
His heart turned to wax
~
It melted away in him
He felt no one heard his cry
He was poured out like water
He was all alone
~
He had no strength left
He lay in the dust of death
He was thirsty and broken
He cried out for help
~
People stared at him
Dogs surrounded his body
The lions came to devour
He was overwhelmed
~
I will not forsake my God
He did not despise my shame
He has seen my suffering
Not hidden his face
~
He heard me crying out for help
I’ll honor him with my life
The poor will eat and find rest
And be satisfied
~
I’ll kneel before him
One who chose to be like me
Proclaim him to those unborn
To my grandchildren
And their children I will speak
Our God, forever is love
