Whispers

As I open Word laid before me
By Your merciful and loving hands, I find
Words from You, speaking to me
Telling me the things I have never known and yet

Have longer for in my heart

For in my longing after You, I find
My soul to grow weary of this world, and I
Who am never satisfied, who often fails
I who know not what I seek, and yet

My heart still pursues

For this desire, is not my own
It is given of Your glory
For all I am, is fallen and lost
Without You, I am nothing, and yet

Still You have loved me so

And so when I open Word
From Heaven given, from Yourself
I hear not dead words of religion,
Nor weary pages of legalism but

The only thing, the only Voice

My heart truly needs
For in those pages, I do find
Or rather, I am found
By You, by You

I am met by You in Word

And I am filled, to the full
Running over with Your love
Overcome, made pure by blood
Of precious, Holy Son

And yet satisfied, within Your presence as
I happily fall apart in Your glory and
Find myself undone in Your beauty
Overwhelmed Your goodness

Overwhelmed by all You are

For in those pages, You speak
Yourself from Heaven, words of Life
Breathing into these dead bones
Reviving me from self wrought death and sin

Cleansing me by Your own blood, that I
That I could never deserve
And yet You still give freely, as I
Come and acknowledge what You did for me

On Calvary, on earthly tree
Where You paid the price for me, and died
Where You died to make me free
That I could live, forever in eternity

With You, my God, who love me so
With You I don’t deserve, and yet
Who paid the price for me
With You, who I hear now

In these whispers in Your Word
As Your Word speaks to me
Lo, I am undone
My God, You are so good

My God, You are faithful and
Constant through the ages, and remain
Forever to be found
In Holy Word, so long as time and Your will allows
You speak, from Word Your life

From the Living pages of Your Scriptures You
You find me where I am
And whisper, perfectly
To I who am unworthy

Your Word, Your Word
Your Word is enough
You are enough for me
Forever, for all eternity

My God You are more than enough
You are more than enough for me~
