God’s Holy Moment
Heart be paused to find the still
The place that knows His peace, His will
An inborn Spirit that dwells inside
Swelled by Love from a Holy tide.
Know that all can, even I
Find the resting spot that waits
Ever in the midst of life’s
Most tangled steps and narrow gates.
But to beseech and ask for His Heart
A granting that Love’s Hand would part…
And in that moment Grace comes again near
God’s Holy moment sheds All, He comes here.
Heart be born in that moment of pause
Seek the riches that rise from such earth.
For Heaven reaches to embrace our souls
Tasking to grasp our own hearts with birth.

In solitaire I walk this morn,
with non but light’s soft hue adorn.
Within this path that finds my soul,
I pray Gods’ keeping, life found whole.
For in taking of all things;
the swift removal times can bring…
I root myself upon one Bright
and dearest thing with every might…
In solitaire the Soul is known
begotten,loved and never Lone.

And We Are Now Loved
We have been Loved
By the Holy One Dear
God’s purposed Son come to us
Into this world near.
Born in sweet manger
Beneath the star’s light
And in our hearts everywhere
We find Him tonight.
And we have been loved
By our Holy Lord of Grace
The Keeper of all our Prayers
Intercessor’s sacred trace…
Living yet as Mercy
That receives every heart
Love reaches full to us
With such lavish impart.
And we are now Loved
Every near and distant one.
Seen in God’s eye
As His Own in homes’ run.
