Christlike

Pure consummation
The very nature of Christ
In my heart
The old man dead and gone
The new man has come
He’s alive
With this certainty
In Christ
The hope of glory
My new identity
Helps me to see
The future full of Christ
That I become
Full of Christ today

Comforter

There is One
One that comforts
More than any other
More than the food that lifts up my soul
More than the sweetest honey
That brightens my eyes
More than the arms of my lover
Or the face of my children
More than the smiles and laughter
Of my grandchildren’s affection
More than the promise of an heir
With future and hope
More than knowing
My life has been fully spent
My gifts measured out with final reward
More than the songs
And dancing colours that flash across
The brilliant canvas of all my days
More than the pain and suffering
The agony and despair
More than life and breath itself
Knowing the comfort of my Comforter
Living inside of me
His eternity placed into my heart
Lights up for all eternity
