Fill

Looking for life, finding a mess.
Fill me up with some emptiness.

Looking for new ways to be blessed.
Fill me up with some emptiness.

Looking for places to find rest.
Fill me up with some emptiness.

Looking for relief from the stress.
Fill me up with some emptiness.

Looking for more goods to possess.
Fill me up with some emptiness.

Looking for uncharted success.
Fill me up with some emptiness.

Looking for ways to impress.
Fill me up with some emptiness.

Hands up to the sky, passion is dead!
Surrender the void, surrender the will!

Supreme is the Son, the One who bled!
His emptied self becomes my fill!

The Glory in You


LiftUpTheCross1c

The eyes clothed in darkness haven't a clue
to the unseen Glory found in You.

Swaddled in lies consigning their gaze,
they wander about in a spiritual haze.

With fervor they seek, grasping at hope,
ignoring the nothingness for which they grope.

Unfamiliar with light and it's glorious effects,
in weariness they remain perplexed.

Then grace uninvited ushers a gleam,
igniting a faith in a glory unseen.

What begins as a flicker turns into a flood
that washes away the blinding mud.

By a word of creation, death becomes life,
and with it an abundance of spiritual sight.

Though seasons of darkness threaten their view,
theirs is sustained by the Glory in You.

Sin

You gave me legs, sin crippled them
You gave me thoughts, sin poisoned them
You gave me emotions, sin exploited them
You gave me a will, sin conformed it
You gave me dominion, sin corrupted it
You gave me talents, sin buried them
You gave me a heart, sin hardened it
You gave me a mind, sin twisted it
You gave me a soul, sin ruined it
You gave me breath, sin choked me
You gave me life, sin killed me
You raised me…………………
