We live in hidden Love.
It has been eclipsed,
And the world is dark,
Cold, grievous, stark
Full of the deafening echos
Of pain.

But when the shadow has passed
And Love is revealed,
It will blind our earth eyes
Burn through the doubt, the lies
And leave only the holy sound
Of His Name.

And we will see what was there, all along.
With the light of true love - Clear, Pure, Just, Strong!

Joie de Vivre

Sit here
Waiting for
The rising sun
And breathing in joy
With great lungsful
Of precious

Rooftops and Shepherds

The clean, cloudless skies
Bless the shepherd boy's eyes
As he walks tall and strong,
Poor, humble, Invincible!

Oil that's falling
Down hair,
Over cheekbones
That glow with the fire
of the calling.

Then cries, and shouts
War, blood, fear
Guilt...and the world

While the chosen one waits
With a dull, nauseous ache,
For redemption.

Can a life that feels no pain
Be taught to suffer?

Can a belly that has never ached
Learn to fill those who hunger?

I am surrounded by the richest of Love's treasures;
My man, my children, my family
How long have you given them?

Yet, I rest in the
All-consuming joy of my Savior.

And I wait here, and
Pray in my comfort-

Lord break my heart,
Before life comes to
Break it for me.

While the choice is mine,
I beg for a heart like Yours.
