“Here I am Gazing, Here I am Kept”, a worship poem from LWillows

When, while – I fathom all in Your care
The moon, the stars, each day born in light’s air
Here I am gazing, here I am kept
Into the worship of heaven’s lift swept.

Still, sweet – such moments softly become
Wrapped in the beauty of silken peace won.
Here I am gazing, here I am kept
But for the Grace of Love’s deep intercept.

When, while – I fathom Your vast
Soaring my heart with such winged view cast
Here I, but gaze with awe stunned
Captured, enraptured, holy given, heart-spun.

“Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, let us be thankful, and so worship God acceptably with reverence and awe, for our “God is a consuming fire” (Hebrews 12:28).

“Jesus answered, ‘It is written: ‘Worship the Lord your God and serve him only.’” (Luke 4:8).

But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us, even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ— by grace you have been saved. (Ephesians 2:4-5 )
