Prayer, Rhyme

Abide

No, there isn’t a word to say
I just want to rest in this place
To hear Your voice speak
Whispering joy and peace

No, there isn’t a clear plan I see
Uncertain still of what it may be
Only let me abide
Close to Your side
Accepting what each day will bring

Peace Comes

Peace doesn’t come
Through restless waiting
It comes through abiding
Resting
In the hands of the One
Who made your heartbeat
It comes in the stillness
When fear is cut down
By faith’s mighty sword
When your worries
Turn to worship
When your longings become
A prayer
When you open your hands
For Him to empty or fill

Just Him

Quiet my soul
Rest a while
In His presence
Not a care
Just Him
Just the darkening sky
And the cicada’s song
The occasional breeze
And a firefly’s flicker
Just the peace
Of knowing that He’s here
In this small corner of the earth
Alone with me
And yet also everywhere else
At the same time
Just the comfort
Of having no words
Because sometimes words can’t speak
♫ What a Friend We Have in Jesus ♫

Rhyme

He Knows

He knows the future
I cannot see
And every way
I’m incomplete

He knows the questions
I do not speak
Every doubt
That’s hidden beneath

He knows my heart
Tattered and worn
Every sin I’ve committed
Since I was born

He knows every secret
Every dream
Every fear
He knows every longing
Every thing I hold dear

He knows me completely
Inside and out
Though
There’s things I wish
He didn’t know about
Yet
In His presence
He makes me new
And wipes my shame
From His view

What kind of love
Could this be?
Except the matchless
Love of the King
Who gives this gift
To all who’ll receive

He knows who I am
I am redeemed
