The Hidden Treasure

April 8, 2011

 
In times of trouble
You have always heard my cry
You, O Lord, keep me safe
 
Looking back I see
The unseen love pursuing
Now seen and experienced
Looking back I see
Faces of those who loved me
And touched me with compassion
 
Her tender voice calls
Her gentleness and kindness
Holding me safely
In her arms with greatest joy
Childhood memory that runs deep
Her name is Ina Roseberry
 
The love in her eyes
Seeing me with compassion
Giving me courage
To hold onto the vision
Of the unspeakable joy
Her name is Sherrill Lynn “Mama Sherrill”
 
You gave me my heart’s desire
You have satisfied my soul
I hunger for righteousness
I will see your face
 
A promise given
The future is in the now
Your unseen presence
 
Unspeakable joy
My eyes are open to love
In silence I hear
Knowledge invites me to look
Faith provides the lens to see
